  Description     : jubatus: Distributed Online Machine Learning Framework

Jubatus is a distributed online machine learning framework developed by
Japan's Nippon Telegraph & Telephone (NTT) and Preferred Infrastructure
Corporation (PFI).

It can be used to analyse data in real time allowing to assist making forecasts
for markets, detecting frauds, predicting natural disasters, estimating parts
and material procurement for manufacturing, making assesments about health
risks and providing predictive techniques in life and natural sciences.

Jubatus is provided as a library and provides client libraries with bindings
for C++, Python, Ruby and Java. An online tutorial and extensive documentation
are provided both in English and Japanese on the Jubatus homepage. Support
can be obtained through Google Groups, news updates are posted on Twitter
(@JubatusOfficial) as well as the Jubatus blog.


I have already been in touch with upstream and notified them that I would like
to package Jubatus for Debian. Since Jubatus is still a rather young project
and thus subject to frequent API changes and code clean ups, the Jubatus team
asked me to allow them to get the code a bit more into shape before they
consider it ready for offical packaging. I have filed this ITP already to
express my interest to become the maintainer of Jubatus in Debian nevertheless.

People who want to try out Jubatus in the mean time can resort to the Debian
and RPM packages provided by the Jubatus team themselves.
