  • Statistics
    • Jim suggests to add a cross-sample
  • Agree to
    • Sample derive from DataObject
    • SampleAlgorithmBase derive from ProcessObject
  • Generators
    • Only the ones that do not need inputs
    • That comes down to the random number generators
  • Deprecation Strategy
    • Keep the old classes, delegating to the new classes?
      • Better for maintenance.
    • Keep the old classes around, with a CMake configuration option?
      • Brings the complication of requiring duplicate dashboard to ensure that both versions of the code still work.
    • ListSampleBase
      • Candidate for deprecation
      • Search algorithm
    • Distances
      • Have them as plug in objects or as Functor
    • KdTree
      • Maybe not to derive from DataObject ?
      • Maybe should derive from Sample ?
      • Identify Use cases before deciding.
      • Allow other distance (non-Euclidean) to be used.
    • Classifiers
      • Do not quite fit in a pipeline style...
      • We need to study Use Cases.
      • Some in Statistics / Some in Algorithms (for Images).
