Errors in installing/importing Guided Analytics for ML Automation in Knime Desktop Platform

Hi everyone!

I was so excited about using Guided Analytic (ML Automation), so I downloaded and imported, then after faced a list of problems you can see at the bottom of this post. It was the same story when I tried to open it directly from web.

Would you please help me with what should I do to resolved these issues.

P.S. > My list was longer at first, I made it shorter by adding some nodes listed in the Guided Analytics page. https://kni.me/w/eAGfGtEAIr-1iYR-

My Knime version is KNIME 4.1.3

Thanks !

Hi, sorry for the delay.
Guided Automation is not made of a single workflow but many of them.

From your error I can see the links between your main Workflow and the other Components are failing.

My assumption is that what you downloaded is only the main workflow. To make it work you need to download first the entire workflow folder and only then open it in your KNIME Analytics Platform (dekstop KNIME tool).

To do this go here: https://hub.knime.com/knime/spaces/Examples/latest/50_Applications/36_Guided_Analytics_for_ML_Automation/01_Guided_Analytics_for_ML_Automation/

and download using the button shown in this screenshot.

Then import to KNIME Analytics Platform, open the workflow “01_Guided_Analytics_for_ML_Automation” and execute all nodes.

You should be able to inspect the views and change the input data by replacing the first component in the workflow.

This workflow is quite useful when performing a complex AutoML procedure via KNIME WebPortal on KNIME Server. That is you make the workflow available via a detailed web browser application to others who do not want to install KNIME and are not super familiar with machine learning.

Of course it works on KNIME Analytics Platform, but the size of the workflow and the various interactive views with “Close and Apply” procedures do not make it super easy to do on a daily basis.

This week a new AutoML Component came out for you to drag and drop from the KNIME Hub to your workflow and start training dozens of models via the new extension Integrated Deployment.

Check it out here:

The Component has everything inside and it can still be deployed to KNIME WebPortal using a workflow such as this one:
