Many people on the internet are interested in an alternative to the Eureqa symbolic regression software, which used to be developed by a company called Nutonian and is no longer available. Such alternative exists, and it is called TuringBot!
You can download the program on this website and try it for free for 14 days, no credit card required. It uses a simulated annealing algorithm to find formulas that connect variables, allowing regression and classification problems to be solved in a very powerful way. Many engineers, researchers and data scientists from around the world are already making use of it with great results.
We believe that our symbolic regression implementation yields better results than the genetic algorithm present in Eureqa, which seems to overly restrict itself to simpler and less recursive formulas, and which often results in polynomial fits to the data that diverge and lose usefulness outside the domain of the training dataset. We also find that TuringBot is noticeably faster than Eureqa.
If you need some help to get started with TuringBot, we have some tutorials which you might find useful:
- The official TuringBot documentation
- Using Symbolic Regression to predict rare events
- Using R to visualize a Symbolic Regression model
You are also encouraged to get in touch with us if you have any questions concerning the software. This is our e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
