TiMBL

TiMBL is an open source software package implementing several memory-based learning algorithms, among which IB1-IG, an implementation of k-nearest neighbor classification with feature weighting suitable for symbolic feature spaces, and IGTree, a decision-tree approximation of IB1-IG. All implemented algorithms have in common that they store some representation of the training set explicitly in memory. During testing, new cases are classified by extrapolation from the most similar stored cases.

Please consult the CLARIAH Software Metadata Requirements at https://github.com/CLARIAH/clariah-plus/blob/main/requirements/software-metadata-requirements.md for an in-depth explanation of any found problems

Validation of TiMBL 6.9 was successful (score=3/5), but there are some warnings which should be addressed:

1. Warning: Documentation *SHOULD* be expressed (This is missing in the metadata)
2. Info: Reference publications *SHOULD* be expressed, if any (The metadata does express this currently, but something is wrong in the way it is expressed. Is the type/class valid?)
3. Info: The funder *SHOULD* be acknowledged (This is missing in the metadata)
4. Info: The technology readiness level *SHOULD* be expressed (This is missing in the metadata)
