Some people may complain about having too much data, hence making it difficult to clean, preprocess and understand these data. Some other might may be afraid of not having enough data for testing a new algorithm or applying a developed methodology. Concerning the latest one, JDSBlog proposes a possible solution through Swivel.com, a website allowing users to upload their data. The article quickly introduces Swivel and then gives an example with data concerning two MMORPG (Massively Muliplayer On-line Role Playing Game). The author also reminds the issue of data cleaning and finishes with a remark on garbage in, garbage out problem. This last point relates to a former post on this blog. Although data on Swivel may not be as formal and serious than UCI Repository or NIST Data Gateway, they may be useful in some situations.
