Somocluhttp://mloss.orgUpdates and additions to SomocluenThu, 01 Mar 2018 23:30:34 -0000Somoclu 1.7.5<html><p>Somoclu is a C++ tool for training self-organizing maps on large data sets using a massively parallel resources. It relies on OpenMP for multicore execution and it builds on MPI for distributing the workload across the nodes of the cluster. It is also able to boost training by using CUDA if graphics processing units are available. A sparse kernel is included, which is useful for high-dimensional but sparse data, such as the vector spaces common in text mining workflows. Python, Julia, R, and MATLAB interfaces facilitate use in data analysis. The code is released under GNU GPLv3 licence. </p> <p>Key features: </p> <ul> <li><p>Fast execution by parallelization: OpenMP, MPI, and CUDA are supported. </p> </li> <li><p>Python, Julia, R, and MATLAB interfaces for the dense multicore CPU kernel. </p> </li> <li><p>Planar and toroid maps. </p> </li> <li><p>Rectangular and hexagonal grids. </p> </li> <li><p>Gaussian and bubble neighborhood functions. </p> </li> <li><p>Both dense and sparse input data are supported. </p> </li> <li><p>Large emergent maps of several hundred thousand neurons are feasible. </p> </li> <li><p>Integration with Databionic ESOM Tools. </p> </li> </ul></html>Peter Wittek, Shi Chao GaoThu, 01 Mar 2018 23:30:34 -0000 organizing mapsmpiesomopenmp
