Machine Learning and Xojo

I have been reading about using R for machine learning. It is a fascinating (free) environment that is cross platform and performs very interesting statistical and other functions, including displaying data and saving images to file.

Then I had a brainwave. Once the R environment is installed, it can be made to run and produce results using command line tools that are able to be called from Xojo.

This means that I could (and intend to) develop a machine learning algorithm that can be called from Xojo, with the results displayed in Xojo. This approach seems much simpler and much more cost-effective than mucking around with AWS and IBM.

Also, there is a method of creating R based apps that run on a web page:

So many fun cool things to mess with and just not nearly enough time
This sounds interesting
