bayes_on_redis library provides bayesian classification on a given text similar to many SPAM/HAM filtering technique.

Project description

# What is BayesOnRedis?

Bayesian classifier on top of Redis

## Why on Redis?

[Redis]( is a persistent in-memory database with supports for various data structures such as lists, sets, and ordered sets. All this data types can be manipulated with atomic operations to push/pop elements, add/remove elements, perform server side union, intersection, difference between sets, and so forth.

Because of Redis properties:

  • It is extremely easy to implement simple algorithm such as bayesian filter.
  • The persistence of Redis means that the Bayesian implementation can be used in real production environment.
  • Even though I don’t particularly care about performance at the moment. Redis benchmarks give me confidence that the implementation can scale to relatively large training data.

## How to install? (Ruby version)

gem install bayes_on_redis

## Getting started

# Create instance of BayesOnRedis and pass your Redis information. # Of course, use real sentences for much better accuracy. # Unless if you want to train spam related things. bor = => ‘’, :redis_port => 6379, :redis_db => 5)

# Teach it bor.train “good”, “sweet awesome kick-ass cool pretty smart” bor.train “bad”, “sucks lame boo death bankrupt loser sad”

# Then ask it to classify text. bor.classify(“awesome kick-ass ninja can still be lame.”)

## for Pythonistas

BayesOnRedis is also available in Python. With the same API.
