GitHub: Machine learning project for kdb+/q

Software engineer and kdb+ programmer Juan Lasheras recently added a kdb+/q machine learning project to GitHub.

The aim of Juan’s ml.q repository is to act as a multi-purpose machine learning toolkit. It provides multiple useful methods that practitioners can use for data analysis and predictive modeling. It is comparable to the scikit-learn toolkit for Python. The project currently has the following three algorithms implemented:

K nearest neighbors: The user specifies a known point in a dataset and the algorithm will find other points closest to it.

K-means clustering: This breaks down a dataset into multiple partitions. This is particularly useful as the partitions can indicate some sort of relationship between data points.

Decision Tree (ID3): This scans a dataset and constructs a series of questions that can help identify future data points.

You can see Juan’s project here.

Kdb+ Utilities: Q code Workspace Utilities

6 Feb 2018 | , ,

If you are a kdb+/q developer, you will find the workspace utilities created by Kx Managing Director and Senior Solution Architect Leslie Goldsmith to be a valuable resource. This is the first in a series of blog posts that give a quick introduction to several utilities available at Leslie Goldsmith’s GitHub. In this part of the series we look at an essential tool which contains routines for summarizing and searching the contents of a workspace, ws.
