Final Demo Live Dynamo node autocomplete as graph is built (post-training)

MODELS

For the POC application in the hackathon, we used Markov Chains and a Naive Bayes Classifier. Although that achieved most of the results we were looking for, we decided that next steps would be to look at models which learn “live”, and look at deep learning models which may be able to give more accurate predictions based on the greater context of the definition, rather than a small piece of what the user is doing.

First Demo Basic node & graph autocomplete (post-training).

Application

The final application was deployed as stand-alone add-in, and as a part of the Dynamo Package manager. Users were allowed to user their own Dynamo definitions for model training, or going with the pre-trained models from the collection of definitions provided by Konrad Sobon and Petr Mitev.
