05:39 < RudraPatil[m]> Can we choose any dataset for Application of ANN Algorithms Implemented in mlpack ?
06:23 < Param-29Gitter[m> Hello, I wanted to know if anyone knows a data-set with 10M numeric samples for classification problem. I wanted it for bench-marking of Naive Bayes.

15:20 < Saksham[m]> Stay Safe Guys !!
15:23 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> Yeah
15:24 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> 21 days of fate
15:27 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> anyone working on models repo?
15:30 < jeffin143[m]> Lot's of time for open source :)
15:32 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> XD
15:33 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> can be considered the silver lining
15:39 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Hey @ojhalakshya, I am.
15:42 < kartikdutt18Gitt> @ojhalakshya, if you want to work on the repo, there are some good first issue if you want to help out.
15:43 < kartikdutt18Gitt> You could take a look at [this](
15:48 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> Thanks for the update on it :)
15:48 < LakshyaOjhaGitte> Stay safe!

16:57 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Hey @rcurtin, mlpack-bot doesn't seem to label issues and PR anymore. Reference tickets #2329 and #2330.
17:04 < rcurtin> >:( another day debugging javascript
17:04 < rcurtin> let me look into it and try to figure it out :)

17:31 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Hey @rcurtin, @zoq, for downloading dataset during runtime in [#3](, I am using wget, so whenever a dataset is needed or pertained weights is set to true it will be downloaded (else it won't be). Do you suggest some other way of doing this or is this okay?
17:33 < rcurtin> CMake can do it too :)
17:33 < rcurtin> see `file(DOWNLOAD ...)`
17:33 < rcurtin> looks like that's available for all CMake 3 versions, which is nice
17:33 < rcurtin> that could provide a platform-independent way to do it, but I don't know if it fits into the workflow you were thinking
17:35 < kartikdutt18Gitt> I think you once mentioned to avoid using cmake so I went with wget. I had already implemented it with Cmake in mlpack/examples#60 . What do you suggest?
18:00 < kartikdutt18Gitt> I think the advantage to something like wget is that when CLI is also added, in one file we could do `--DATASET=mnist` and mnist would be downloaded if it doesn't exist. The same file could be used to download any dataset that we support.
18:07 < rcurtin> sorry, maybe I misspoke; my suggestion was to avoid CMake for the examples repository, but for the models repository it seems to make sense to me
18:08 < rcurtin> maybe it makes sense to download straight from C++ then, and not use wget? or do you mean that you are using a C++ interface for wwget?
18:09 < rcurtin> *wget
18:12 * kartikdutt18Gitt sent a long message: < >
18:15 < rcurtin> ahhh, ok, that makes more sense to me
18:15 < rcurtin> I thought you meant that this would be done during configuration/build
18:15 < rcurtin> maybe libcurl would be more widely available and installed?
18:15 < kartikdutt18Gitt> And yeah we need Cmake for models. Sorry I wasn't clear, I meant you suggested that maybe we could find an alternative to downloading weights and file using Cmake rather than doing something like `-DDOWNLOAD_DATASETS=ON` or `-DDOWNLOAD_MNIST=ON`
18:16 < rcurtin> agreed, I think downloading them at runtime is a reasonable idea
18:16 < rcurtin> it makes more sense for when these bindings are distributed
18:16 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Ahh no, that wouldn't be a very good idea. The user would be downloading very large datasets that he won't use.
18:17 < kartikdutt18Gitt> Great. I will switch to libcurl
18:17 < rcurtin> sounds good---sorry for any confusion on my part :)
18:19 < kartikdutt18Gitt> No concussion on my part, I think I am up to date. Will push a commit tomorrow for lib curl. Thanks a lot.
18:20 < kartikdutt18Gitt> *confusion

23:23 < KarthikeyanR[m]> Hi, regarding your gsoc idea for ml pack on resource constrained devices such as raspberry pi. incidentally I had been developing a project called klib for the same purpose. Can I just use for gsoc and use that to complete the project and somehow merge it later?
23:32 < KarthikeyanR[m]> I am sorry if i am too late for gsoc but I am still working forward to contribute to the community
