Installing Weka

Ian Witten shows how to install the Weka data mining workbench on your own computer, and how to set things up to make it convenient to use.

Here’s how to download the Weka data mining workbench and install it on your own computer. For future convenience, create a shortcut to the program and put it somewhere handy – like the desktop. The Weka download comes with a folder containing sample data files that we’ll be using throughout the course; put this somewhere handy too – like the My Documents folder. Weka has four interfaces: the “Explorer” is the one we’ll be using throughout this course.

(In the video Ian downloads Weka 3.6, but you should download the latest stable version of the software.)
