Improved Model_Exporter Coming Soon
Mar 29, 2011
EVRI’s Model_Exporter allows users of PLS_Toolbox and Solo to export their Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Partial Least Squares (PLS) Regression and other models in a variety of formats suitable for use in both MATLAB and other environments (e.g. LabSpec, GNU Octave, Symbion, LabVIEW, Java, C++/C#). A new, improved version of Model_Exporter will be released in the coming weeks. The new version will allow models to be more easily applied on platforms with less computer power, such as on hand-held devices.
The new Model_Exporter will include a number of improvements including a much less memory-intensive encoding of Savitzky-Golay derivatives and smoothing and similar improvements in handling of excluded variables. The new version will also support additional preprocessing methods which were released in versions 6.0 and 6.2 of PLS_Toolbox and Solo.
The other big news is that we will also be bundling with Model_Exporter a freely-distributable .NET class to do predictions from exported models. As-is, this class can be integrated into any .NET application (C++/C#/VB) from Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or later. It can be used and redistributed without any per-use charge (exactly as the exported models are licensed) and we’d be happy to work with you on integrating this class into your end application. If you have interest in this approach, just let our Chief of Technology Development, Jeremy Shaver, or me know.
