KET Derivative Products

There is a natural link between analytical services of KET and data analysis software products: patterns (dependence descriptors) found in the process of KET analysis can be further implemented as programs that predict, recognize, raise early warning flags, etc.

Results of Analysis and Pattern Representation

As explained in the technological part of this site (see "Technology" and "White Paper"), a dependence descriptor first can be found in a certain "invariant" form, which later can be  converted into many well-known forms for convenience of the user.  

This conversion is a separate stage of KET analysis. It is supported by several representation modules.  In some cases representation is an equivalent transformation, i.e., does not imply any loss of accuracy. In some cases it is a lossy conversion (approximation). Representation utilities inform the analyst about potential loss of information.

In such cases, like in all other approximation procedures, different criteria can be applied.  The most typical situation is a necessity to trade between accuracy and complexity. One of useful features of KET is its capability to establish available range of accuracy and complexity in advance, so that the analysis (or the user) can choose realistic accuracy and optimize in terms of complexity and vice versa.

Internal Representations and Executable Patterns

KET internal representations typically are the most simple and accurate. For this reason, if the client has no good reasons to prefer some special representation (like a neural net), then it is better to stick to the original form of the pattern.

If the patterns should be implemented as a program, it can be converted into an executable form. In this sense we sometimes talk about "executable patterns".

On the other hand, there are at least two frequent situations where users prefer conversion into another form: one of them is a concern about compatibility (or interaction) between the pattern and other previously created parts of the application,. another is the requirement of the client to create the final pattern that could be understood by people (specialists in the applied field) or by a semantic system. 

 Pattern Implementation Services

One of KET services (see "Services") is related to creation of executable patterns and /or the search for representations that satisfy clients requirements. It usually includes compatibility, approximation and interpretability issues. The result of the services are software products that are derivatives of KET analysis results.
