Source file for swarming need to be "csv" file only?


Regarding to the swarm description config file, the source under streamDef must be “csv” only or it can be panda dataframe variable ?

The swarming codebase is very old and rigid. It does not allow streaming input. You must use a CSV file. This is because swarming is only used to sample some of the data stream (in a CSV file) to try to find optimal model parameters. When you create your NuPIC model, you can stream data into it however you wish.
