Greetings Earthlings (...and otherwise affiliated),
It's that time again, and we are happy to announce a new release (v0.6.12-alpha) featuring the wonderful work of community member Andrew Dillon (@Hopding)!
Thanks to Andrew, HTM.Java not only has a new SDRClassifier but in addition to that, two more added features which distinguish HTM.Java's Network API, as they are not yet found in NuPIC (Numenta's developers have much bigger fish to fry , such as spearheading the newest algorithms!) - but if you want to play around with this new feature or your project requires or could use the ability to specify multiple prediction fields...
As of this release, users can now:
1.) Specify multiple specific fields to infer (predict) upon.
2.) Specify which classifier to use on each field! (Either the CLAClassifier or the new SDRClassifier ported from @ycui 's original work in NuPIC's Python version).
HTM.Java's wiki has not yet been updated with instructions but for now, take a look at some of the tests for usage hints: (here's a simple example of Network Creation)
Here you'll find the new parameter which was added to allow specification of field/classifier pairs.
As mentioned before, the wiki will be updated soon, and the javadocs will also be uploaded (although they are available from Maven Central as soon as the site is updated, which usually take a few hours).
Thanks again Andrew for your wonderful contribution to HTM.Java and the HTM Community, and thanks also go out to @ycui for his original work and for his assistance to Andrew. Not least of all, thanks go out to Numenta (and its supportive development staff and Community builders); for its open policies and generosity, without which none of this would be possible, and for whom due acknowledgement is very sparsely given and cannot be overstated!
