About: FABIA is a biclustering algorithm that clusters rows and columns of a matrix simultaneously. Consequently, members of a row cluster are similar to each other on a subset of columns and, analogously, members of a column cluster are similar to each other on a subset of rows. Biclusters are found by factor analysis where both the factors and the loading matrix are sparse. FABIA is a multiplicative model that extracts linear dependencies between samples and feature patterns. Applications include detection of transcriptional modules in gene expression data and identification of haplotypes/>identity by descent< consisting of rare variants obtained by next generation sequencing.

About: MLlib provides a distributed machine learning (ML) library to address the growing need for scalable ML. MLlib is developed in Spark (http://spark.incubator.apache.org/), a cluster computing system designed for iterative computation. Moreover, it is a component of a larger system called MLbase (www.mlbase.org) that aims to provide userfriendly distributed ML functionality both for ML researchers and domain experts. MLlib currently consists of scalable implementations of algorithms for classification, regression, collaborative filtering and clustering. Changes:Initial Announcement on mloss.org.

About: This package includes implementations of the CCM, DMV and DMV+CCM parsers from Klein and Manning (2004), and code for testing them with the WSJ, Negra and Cast3LB corpuses (English, German and Spanish respectively). A detailed description of the parsers can be found in Klein (2005). Changes:Initial Announcement on mloss.org.

About: Test submission. Is MLOSS working? Changes:Initial Announcement on mloss.org.

About: CIlib is a library of computational intelligence algorithms and supporting components that allows simple extension and experimentation. The library is peer reviewed and is backed by a leading research group in the field. The library is under active development. Changes:Initial Announcement on mloss.org.

About: Stochastic neighbor embedding originally aims at the reconstruction of given distance relations in a lowdimensional Euclidean space. This can be regarded as general approach to multidimensional scaling, but the reconstruction is based on the definition of input (and output) neighborhood probability alone. The present implementation also allows for handling dissimilarity or scoreinduced neighborhood topologies and makes use of quasi 2nd order gradientbased (l)BFGS optimization. Changes:

About: The aim is to embed a given data relationship matrix into a lowdimensional Euclidean space such that the point distances / distance ranks correlate best with the original input relationships. Input relationships may be given as (sparse) (asymmetric) distance, dissimilarity, or (negative!) score matrices. Inputoutput relations are modeled as lowconditioned. (Weighted) Pearson and soft Spearman rank correlation, and unweighted soft Kendall correlation are supported correlation measures for input/output object neighborhood relationships. Changes:

About: Mulan is an opensource Java library for learning from multilabel datasets. Multilabel datasets consist of training examples of a target function that has multiple binary target variables. This means that each item of a multilabel dataset can be a member of multiple categories or annotated by many labels (classes). This is actually the nature of many real world problems such as semantic annotation of images and video, web page categorization, direct marketing, functional genomics and music categorization into genres and emotions.

About: MLwizard recommends and optimizes classification algorithms based on metalearning and is a software wizard fully integrated into RapidMiner but can be used as library as well. Changes:Faster parameter optimization using genetic algorithm with predefined start population.

About: Matlab code for learning probabilistic SVM in the presence of uncertain labels. Changes:Added missing dataset function (thanks to Hao Wu)

About: This package contains a python and a matlab implementation of the most widely used algorithms for multiarmed bandit problems. The purpose of this package is to provide simple environments for comparison and numerical evaluation of policies. Changes:Initial Announcement on mloss.org.

About: The package provides a Lagrangian approach to the posterior regularization of given linear mappings. This is important in two cases, (a) when systems are underdetermined and (b) when the external model for calculating the mapping is invariant to properties such as scaling. The software may be applied in cases when the external model does not provide its own regularization strategy. In addition, the package allows to rank attributes according to their distortion potential to a given linear mapping. Changes:Version 1.1 (May 23, 2012) memory and time optimizations distderivrel.m now supports assessing the relevance of attribute pairs Version 1.0 (Nov 9, 2011) * Initial Announcement on mloss.org.
