Use Case Description

Integration of WEKA in a Science Gateway
Integration of the Waikato Environment for Knowledge Analysis (WEKA) collection of machine learning algorithms for data mining tasks in a Science Gateway. WEKA will be trained with the Wisconsin Breast Cancer datasets from the UCI Machine Learning Repository to help doctors in Tanzania to distinguish breast cancer from benign samples.

e-Infrastructure Services Exploited

The main outcome of the use case is a JSR 168/286 standard-based “portlet”, which will be integrated in the Africa Grid Science Gateway.

For running WEKA, the Africa Grid Science Gateway is connected to a FutureGateway API Server – developed in the context of the INDIGO-DataCloud project – which seamlessly executes jobs on local, Grid and Cloud resources belonging to the Africa & Arabia Regional Operation Centre.
