The Adams Workflow

From the webpage:

The Advanced Data mining And Machine learning System (ADAMS) is a novel, flexible workflow engine aimed at quickly building and maintaining real-world, complex knowledge workflows.

Same source as WEKA.

What if we think about identification as workflow?

Whatever stability we attribute to an identification is the absence of additional data that would create a change.

Looking backwards over prior identifications, we fit them into the schema of our present identification and that eliminates any movement from the past. The past is fixed and terminates in our present identification.

That view fails to appreciate the world isn’t going to end with any of us individually. The world and its information systems will continue, as will the workflow that defines identifications.

Replacing our identifications with newer ones.

The question we face is whether our actions will support or impede re-use of our identifications in the future.

I first saw Adams Workflow at Nat Torkington’s Four short links: 24 January 2013.
