Apply a classifier on a new dataset (Deployment)

How to apply classifier on a new dataset?

This functionality surpasses the TANAGRA framework, which intends only to evaluate and compare data mining algorithms. But, users ask it often; in this tutorial we show how to proceed.

Data preparation is a primordial step. Indeed, TANAGRA can handle only one data source. It is not theoretically possible to manipulate two dataset, and therefore apply a classifier on a new dataset. The trick is in the dataset preparation.
