OCCAM is software developed at Portland State University under the supervision of Dr. Martin Zwick. It implements Reconstructibility Analysis (RA), a method developed in the systems community, and which uses information theory to:
The theoretical background of RA is not accessible to casual users, but should look familiar to those who have experience in machine learning, data mining, statistical analysis, and related areas. Fortunately, OCCAM makes it possible to take advantage of the machinery of RA without detailed knowledge of the underlying theory.
