The main objective of the CAKEBox (Computational Approaches for Knowledge Extraction in Big data) project is the development of new models for knowledge extraction on Big Data. The final aim is to overcome, through these models, existing challenges that arise from this type of problems. This main objective can be itemized in the following sub-objectives:

First, new algorithms for both predictive and descriptive tasks will be developed, improving those proposals considered as the state-of-the-art. The proposed models will be easily scalable and able to deal with complex data representations. A special interest will be paid on the development of learning rule algorithms due to their interpretability as well as on ensemble methods which have shown a great accuracy and applicability to a variety of problems. All the designed algorithms will be validated through a series of datasets and implemented in the most popular Big Data platforms (Hadoop, Spark and Flink).

Second, the developed models will be applied to two real-world problems in the context of biomedicine. More specifically, such models will be used to study the impact of health habits in the prevention of cancer and the analysis of biochemical parameters in hemodialysis patients. In both cases, the aim is to obtain predictive models that help in the development of early diagnosis systems as well as descriptive models used to improve the understanding of the most representative factors on the problems at hand.

Finally, for the sake of sharing the developed proposals with the scientific community, any source code together with all the datasets used in the experimental stage will be provided. In addition, a repository of Docker images will be created which will include whatever is necessary to replicate any of the experiments carried out during the project development.

At the ages of fifty four fifty can advise you that I'onal ended up lucky not to have wanted the product sooner, nevertheless loosing your partner of 25yrs 2010 became a curve which modified me personally for a long time. Now there came out a place exactly where click to read fifty had visit to have my tastes fulfilled only to find out this plumbing related desired just a little poke. So I questioned my own Computer system doc intended for a little something with tiny facet is affecting. He or she provided the particular recommended you read Cialis regular 5mg. 1st working day fifty had 5mg without any help to discover more help in the event that t discovered virtually any difference considering the woman never was planning determine, which'azines our system and also l'meters being dedicated to the idea. Regardless, these materials Operates, along with is useful. And click here then up coming night time with your ex m took 10mg at 8pm, and the rest is heritage. Through 13:double zero fifty manufactured my own move, but it appeared to be the most element to live in place until finally the sunlight came up upward , 100%Pleased :)When i't thirty-two as well as gone pretty much 1,5 years without intercourse. I had created pop over to this website plenty of anxiousness related penile erection challenges. And hop over to here then We found this specific great which woman My spouse and i started courting, along with first 2 times us all sex didn'to determine which properly, and i also appeared to be worried about just what exactly your woman considered this matter. We obtained braveness to visit and request cialis approved from the health practitioner. When i had taken 10mg product and it labored perfectly. I could truthfully continue on having sex many times a day without the problems. Merely bad thing is a smallish frustration. For me this can be truly a wonder drug.
