Free registration required

Executive Summary

WEKA is a popular machine learning workbench with a development life of nearly two decades. This paper provides an overview of the factors that the authors believe to be important to its success. Rather than focusing on the software's functionality, the authors review aspects of project management and historical development decisions that likely had an impact on the uptake of the project. The authors present a brief account of the WEKA 3 software, which is distributed under the GNU General Public License, followed by some lessons learned over the period spanning its development and maintenance.
