It’s now possible to evaluate the uClassify server locally. We have built a new version of the server that can be downloaded freely and executed on Windows operating systems.
With the evaluation version you can test one of the servers key features – the classification speed without having to go via the web API which can be slow for large volumes of data that has to be sent over the web. This is important for anyone who want to make sure it can handle big volumes of data before purchasing a commercial license.
The only restriction is that it has to be restarted for every 10000 calls – just as a reminder as it’s only for evaluation =)
Have a look in the server manual and download it! …. and let us know what you think!
I had to restart the Windows server tonight (for the first time in more 6 months), while doing this I decided to install some Windows updates. This took more time than expected (2 hours). Everything should be up and running now though, sorry for any inconvenience!
Yesterday we were mentioned on ReadWriteWeb which generated a lot of visits and more importantly – classifiers. 30 new classifiers were created within a time period of 10 hours, even though many are just created out of curiosity to quickly test the system – some will hopefully mature and have web applications built around it.
What’s going on techwise
As you have noticed we are continuously improving our system by carefully adding new features. The following tasks are planned for the GUI
We are soon installing a new more flexible menu system.
Users will be able to create profiles with descriptions and links. Also classifiers should be able to have a link to the web site it’s implemented.
Better information about training – right now there is no feedback on how much training has been done or is required. We want to give users an idea of how the training data performs.
What’s going on commercialwise
Everything is free on uClassify and that is how it will stay.
Our commercial idea is to offer companies the possibility to buy their own classification servers. For large databases with texts that needs to be classified it’s intractable to send every text for a roundtrip to uclassify.com. Instead companies could be interested in doing this efficiently locally. A products page with server information will appear soon.
