.NET Data Mining Frameworks & Libraries RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to know the .NET libraries (Open Source or Commercial) that implements the data mining algorithms. for instance alglib has implemented some of data mining algorithms, MSSQLServer Analysis Server is another one. what are other libraries and which one of them is the most common and powerful?

  • There are many libraries for different OS, using different languages and implementing different algorithms. Some of them are easier to use and some are very difficult to use. It will be useful to know your requirements/criteria for choosing the library and what you feel comfortable with.

    This forum is mostly for SQL Server Analysis Services algorithms. Note that you need to have SQL Server installed to use the algorithms. There are many algorithms to choose from.

    For Hadoop, there is a Mahout library. It is more difficult to use (you will need to prepare data before passing it to the algorithm, each algorithm expects input in a different format).

    There are many companies who are building algorithms for specific problems (for example, only focusing on forecasting algorithms).
