= maxent_string_classifier this code was developed by trampoline systems [ http://trampolinesystems.com ] as part of its sonar platform and released under a BSD licence for community use http://www.github.com/mccraigmccraig/maxent_string_classifier == DESCRIPTION: a JRuby maxent classifier for string data, based on the OpenNLP Maxent framework [ http://maxent.sourceforge.net/ ]. it's easy to build your own classifier... look in the data directory for two examples == FEATURES: - train classifiers for string data using files of manually classified examples - classify string data == PROBLEMS: - set of features available for classification is fixed... new features require code change == SYNOPSIS: require 'rubygems' require 'maxent_string_classifier' # train and persist a model with a directory name. # training data for each outcome is in .txt files in the directory. # a model.yml file defines features to be used for contexts, and training params # # the model is written as a .txt.gz file in the directory model = MaxentStringClassifier::Loader.train( "/Users/mccraig/language" ) # load a model with it's directory name. .txt.gz model and model.yml are # required model = MaxentStringClassifier::Loader.load( "/Users/mccraig/language" ) # classify model.classify( "je voudrais une chambre" ) model.classify( "i am going to buy an elephant" ) # classify with a margin of certainty model.classify_margin( "i am une chambre", 1.1) # models in data dir are loaded with relative path MaxentStringClassifier::Loader.load( "language" ) == REQUIREMENTS: JRuby == INSTALL: sudo jgem sources -a http://gems.github.com sudo jgem install mccraigmccraig-maxent_string_classifier == LICENSE: (The BSD License) Copyright (c) 2009, Trampoline Systems Ltd, http://trampolinesystems.com/ All rights reserved.
