Projects / dbacl


dbacl is a digramic Bayesian text classifier. Given some text, it calculates the posterior probabilities that the input resembles one of any number of previously learned document collections. It can be used to sort incoming email into arbitrary categories such as spam, work, and play, or simply to distinguish an English text from a French text. It fully supports international character sets, and uses sophisticated statistical models based on the Maximum Entropy Principle.

Release Notes: This release includes various bugfixes and small usability improvements in the documentation and default switch handling. The major addition is support for the TREC spamjig and improved memory mapping for faster online learning.

  •  13 Nov 2004 00:27

Release Notes: This release added a new MAP confidence score (-U, to complement the -X switch), some new scoring types in mailinspect, and a new parsing switch for trace headers in email (-T email:theaders). Category learning now accepts directory names as well as file names, and preliminary work on a new header mining tool (hmine) was performed. Category files are now written in 'portable' format by default.

Release Notes: Many bugs were discovered and fixed. A test suite was added to prevent future regressions. It can be called using make check.
