Linnaeus Build Status

Carl Linnaeus

Linnaeus is a redis-backed naive Bayesian classification system. Please see the rdoc for more information. Ruby 1.9 is required.


lt =      # Used to train documents
lc =   # Used to classify documents

lt.train 'language', 'Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general-purpose object-oriented programming language that combines syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features.'
lt.train 'database', 'PostgreSQL, often simply Postgres, is an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS) available for many platforms including Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X.'

lc.classify 'Perl is a high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming language.' # returns "language"
