KNIME Analytics Platform 3.2 released

The latest release brings new features and improved usability to KNIME Analytics Platform and the commercial portfolio of KNIME products.

KNIME Analytics Platform 3.2: smarter analytics

The new Workflow Coach is our brand new recommendation engine that suggests which node would best follow the last one, based on community usage statistics. Missing Node Installation means that you no longer have to look for the missing plugin or extension yourself. Now, when you open a workflow that contains nodes not in your workbench, the missing items can be selected and are then automatically installed.

We’ve also added new functionality to further advance our analytics capabilities. Here are just a few examples. Gradient Boosted Trees and Deep Learning are a new set of nodes for learning and scoring both classification and regression models. The PMML Transformation Applier is a new node that applies all of the preprocessing operations described in a PMML document to a data stream.

Have you been needing to analyze linked data? Well, now you can with new functionality enabling access to the Semantic Web and resources such as DBpedia and CHEMBL from within KNIME Analytics Platform.
