Weka

Weka (Waikato Environment for Knowledge Analysis) is a software “workbench” containing data mining algorithms designed for data analytics, with an emphasis on predictive analytical models. Weka runs in Explorer, a user interface with “panels” that give access to the core elements of the workbench. Included are panels for clustering, classifying, visualization, attribute association and selection and preprocessing.
