The NOESIS Open Source Framework for Network Data Mining

Víctor Martínez, Fernando Berzal, Juan-Carlos Cubero

Abstract

NOESIS is a software framework for the development of data mining techniques for networked data. As an open source project, released under a BSD license, NOESIS intends to provide the necessary infrastructure for solving complex network data mining problems. Currently, it includes a large collection of popular network-related data mining techniques, including the analysis of network structural properties, community detection algorithms, link scoring and prediction methods, and network visualization techniques. The design of NOESIS tries to facilitate the development of parallel algorithms using solid object-oriented design principles and structured parallel programming. NOESIS can be used as a stand-alone application, as many other network analysis packages, and can be included, as a lightweight library, in domain-specific data mining applications and systems.
