Alkemy is a decision-tree learning system designed to learn comprehensible
theories from structured data.
The logical foundations for Alkemy is provided in the book
Learning' by John
Algorithmic and learning-theoretic aspects of the system are discussed
in the thesis Learning Comprehensible
Theories from Structured Data.
Alkemy is implemented in Noweb-C++, with fairly extensive documentation.
It is being actively supported.
The current version is Release 1.3. (Escher is now implemented.)
and its source code is protected by copyright, but is available
for research and educational purposes.
If you wish to use this code in any other way, please contact me for
Kindly email a short note to let me know you have downloaded the system.
Also let me know if you wish to be added to an Alkemy mailing list.
The list will inform people of updates to the system. Obviously, I am also
interested in any feedback and bug reports for Alkemy.
An older (but more efficient) version that does not make use of Escher
for computation is available
