  1. Linear Correlation Visualization

    The visualization associated with the Linear Correlation task needs to provide feature names on both rows and columns

    • R libraries should be autoloaded when not in standard default library set

      Auto generate a template for autoloading R libraries when they are not present. This can auto generate a ZIP file of any missing libraries as a routine.

      For example, if I use "library(rplot)" in my R code and it is not present in the default environment, it should possibly generate the appropriate ZIP file and the R code from CRAN to include the zip file.

      • Add data selection and data quality assessment module

        Just providing algorithms is not sufficient. Anyone can use free R to run an algorithm. The tough thing is how to decide what data to enter into the algorithm and what transformations to apply to this data. Rarely will a user have data that is ready for analysis (apart from clustering/association analysis).

        Kindly do not repeat the mistakes of the tool you had in SSAS.

        • Better categorisation of variables as nominal and ordinal

          From what I could see, the metadata editor module provides only very basic functionality to categorise data.

          We must be able to specify whether a classification is nominal (e.g. south, north, west, east) or ordinal (e.g. bronze, gold, silver).

          • Support of different training techniques and architectures

            Neural network module in azure still needs improvements by providing different type of training techniques like :-

            - Resilient Propagation (RPROP)
            - Levenberg Marquardt (LMA)

            And different architectures like:-
            - Neuroevolution of Augmenting Topologies (NEAT)

              • AutoLayout for Design Surface

                It would be great if the design surface has the auto layout button to position the modules automatically. Most of time working with a workflow needs to use lots of modules it would be easier to just focus on the model creation and not focusing on positioning of modules. In addition some might be interested to see the workflow in left to right direction.

                  • NIALM Load Monitoring

                    Disaggregate load usage into device classifications by evaluating load signatures, device state signatures, and state change signatures from a single meter / switch. Evolve the model with slowly changing signatures to maintain identification of load devices and predict demand, device outages (elevators, etc.) based on learned outage run-up events.

                      • Improve the Column selector

                        Please improve the usability of this dialog.

                        My suggestions:
                        * Add support for range-selecting columns indices by entering 2-9 to select columns 2 thru 9.
                        * When the newly added line is out of sights, scroll down automatically to show it
                        * When press Enter in the value-editbox, add a new line and move the cursor to its editbox
                        Now you would need to switch from keyboard to mouse to click +, then scroll down, click in the editbox and start typing

                        • Support non en-us locale in R module...

                          In current ML's R module only support en-us locale, so some language (like Chinese) will become garbled.

                          • Improve access to the Visualize option

                            Since I frequently use the visualize action to view the outcome, I would like this to be easier to access.

                            Implementation suggestions:
                            * Add an access key to it (type 'v' to show the Visualization of the selected model element).
                            * Add it to the rightclick menu of the block instead of just the menu on the output-point which is more difficult to hit

                            • Allow Reader connections to Azure SQL from "read-only" accounts.

                              When reading from an Azure SQL db, using a 'Reader' module, the user account needs to be admin. Read-only accounts don't seem to work. Can we get this feature added? Some DBs are production and we need to limit types of access.

                                It would be super helpful for someone joining an existing team to see the history of each dataset. Where it came from (output of an experiment, uploaded, etc) and where it is being used currently.

                                • K-Means Clustering data size limitation

                                  I was able to run K-Means Clustering with 435MB data in plain text.
                                  But I was not able to run with 522MB data.
                                  Does data size limit exist when we run K-Means Clustering?

                                    I currently have ±200 saved datasets and find it very cumbersome to delete them one at a time. It would be great to have a checkbox-based bulk delete function.

                                        • Incorrect dataset type assigned to no header CSV files with *.nh.csv file extension, please assign Generic CSV file with no header

                                          Assign the correct dataset type to no header CSV files with *.nh.csv file extension which should be Generic CSV file with no header, instead of Generic CSV with header.
