Default Bug#607929: ITP: dimbl -- Distributed Memory Based Learner

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Joost van Baal <joostvb-debian-bugs-20101224-3@mdcc.cx>

* Package name : dimbl
Version : 0.7
Upstream Author : ILK Research Group, Tilburg University, http://ilk.uvt.nl
* URL : http://ilk.uvt.nl/dimbl/
* License : GPL-3
Programming Lang: C++
Description : Distributed Memory Based Learner

Dimbl is a wrapper around the k-nearest neighbor classifier in TiMBL, offering
parallel classification on multi-CPU machines. Dimbl splits the original
training set, builds separate TiMBL classifiers per training subset, and
merges their nearest-neighbor sets per classified instance
Dimbl's features are: * Wraps neatly around TiMBL, retaining all command line
options; * Knows what to do with your multiple, duo, or quad cores; * Makes
use of the OpenMP specification for parallel programming; * Can attain
superlinear speed gains compared to standard TiMBL.
Dimbl is a product of the ILK (Induction of Linguistic Knowledge) research
group of the Tilburg University and the CNTS research group of the University
of Antwerp.
If you do scientific research in Natural Language Processing using the
Memory-Based Learning technique, Dimbl will likely be of use to you.


Dimbl depends upon TiMBL, which is now in http://ftp-master.debian.org/new.html
