"CLA Classifier" vs "SDR Classifier"


I am finding that I am having a hard time getting good results with the SDR that is built into nupic 0.5.5. I see how to set the desired classifier in the model params JSON but am not sure how to do so when swarming.

Ideally, I would like to swarm with just the CLA classifier. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I changed the name of this topic from “CLA vs SDR”. @ycui Do you know if the classifier can be specified for a swarm?

I haven’t tried to use SDR classifier for swarming yet. In principle one should be able to replace CLA with SDR classifier. The key parameter in the SDR classifier that needs to be tuned carefully is the learning rate alpha.

@ycui - thanks for the response.

How do you recommend replacing it?
