This repository includes a script that can be used to benchmark various implementations of dimension reduction algorithms. Currently the script supports three modes:

  • jmlr. Reproduce comparison table from the JMLR MLOSS submission of paper on Tapkee.
  • all. Run all Tapkee algorithms on all included datasets and output walltime.
  • scaling. Measure speedups caused by increasing number of used threads.

To run the script with some mode use python [mode] where mode is any of the modes listed above.

This repository also includes methods availability table that can be found here.

Included libraries:

  • Tapkee. This repository includes binary of application from the Tapkee library v0.1. Requires no installation.

  • Scikit-learn. This repository includes Scikit-learn v.0.13.1 with no patches applied. To install Scikit-learn cd to scikit-learn/sklearn and run python build and sudo python install commands.

  • Waffles. This repository includes version 2012-08-31 of Waffles library with small patch to support time measuring. To build Waffles cd to waffles/src and run sudo make install command. After that, binaries will be located in the waffles/bin/ folder.

  • Matlab Toolbox for Dimensionality Reduction (MTfDR). This repository includes MTfDR v.08 April 2012 without any changes. MTfDR requires no installation.
