Embedded Machine Learning

When invoking learning schemes from the graphical user interfaces or the command line, there is no need to know anything about programming in Java. In this section we show how to access these algorithms from your own code. In doing so, the advantages of using an object-oriented programming language will become clear. From now on, we assume that you have at least some rudimentary knowledge of Java. In most practical applications of data mining the learning component is an integrated part of a far larger software environment. If the environment is written in Java, you can use Weka to solve the learning problem without writing any machine learning code yourself.
