Awesome Machine Learning with Ruby Awesome ★87749

A Curated List of Ruby Machine Learning Links and Resources

Machine Learning is a field of Computational Science - often nested under AI research - with many practical applications due to the ability of resulting algorithms to systematically implement a specific solution without explicit programmer’s instructions. Obviously many algorithms need a definition of features to look at or a biggish training set of data to derive the solution from.

This curated list comprises awesome libraries, data sources, tutorials and presentations about Machine Learning utilizing the Ruby programming language.

A lot of useful resources on this list come from the development by The Ruby Science Foundation, our contributors and our own day to day work on various ML applications. Read why this list is awesome.

Needs your Help!

All projects in this section are really important for the community but need more attention. Please if you have spare time and dedication spend some hours on the code here.

Wait but why?

There are a lot of software lists with ML related tools. There are a couple of lists with Ruby related projects. There are no lists of only working and tested software with documented scope. We’ll try to make one!

What is awesome? Awesome are documented, maintained and focused tools.

Can something turn not awesome at a point? Yes! Abandoned projects with broken dependencies aren’t awesome any more! They leave this list.
