[scikit-learn] is Sci_kiet-Learn the right choice for my project

Dear Mike,

Just my two cents about your inquiry, where I strictly a user of
scikit-learn for many years.

- From your description of application context, I would say that
scikit-learn is perfectly fine. However, I would suggest the awareness that
a monolithic model incorporating all data (as is the image TV wrongfully
projects) is not a valid strategy. Stratifying data into contextually
correct subgroups and then running scikit-learn, for example to estimate
during development the extent of predictability, will be helpful.
- Duplicate checking should be easy to use using standard python objects
(set or list counting), once the context derives how the objects are
vectorized/featurized. I don't see a need to force scikit-learn for that
- Missing data could be implemented by context-specific object classes that
you design, which could contain something like a __bool__()  method that
could tell if you if the object has all of the required data populated and
- Detection of errors in configuration could be either explicitly driven by
logic (of the context, again something to return a bool that an object is
configured correctly), or potentially could be statistically derived as
outliers from the given background data distribution, in which then
scikit-learn could be of help. If there are too many variates (thousands or
tens of thousands) in your data that prohibit explicit logic, then
scikit-learn's Random Forest algorithms might be perfectly fine and provide
verification through visualization of Decision Tree rules.

Hope this helps,
J.B. Brown
