ClowdFlows is an open sourced cloud based platform for composition, execution, and sharing of interactive machine learning and data mining workflows. It is based on the principles of service-oriented knowledge discovery and features interactive scientific workflows. In contrast to comparable data mining platforms, ClowdFlows runs in all major Web browsers and platforms. ClowdFlows provides researchers with an easy way to expose and share their work and results, as only an Internet connection and a Web browser are required to access the workflow from anywhere. Practictioners can use ClowdFlows to seamlessly integrate and join different implementations of algorithms, tools and Web services into a coherent workflow that can be executed in a cloud based application. ClowdFlows is also easily extensible during run-time by importing Web services and using them as new workflow components.
Another key feature of the ClowdFlows platform is its stream mining module. By use of two special mechanisms workflows can be transformed into streaming workflows that are executed indefinitely and constantly mine data on the input streams while intermediate results can be accessed by directing a browser to a particular URL.
ClowdFlows is actively developed at the Department of Knowledge Technologies of the Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia.
ClowdFlows is publicly deployed at clowdflows.org where anyone can sign up and start constructing and executing workflows. However the source code can also be downloaded and a private version of ClowdFlows can easily be setup.
