File exchange between Hugin and Netica
« on: August 04, 2010, 12:16:02 »
We have both Hugin and Netica deployed in our institute. How can we convert a Hugin model to a Netica model, and vice versa? It seems GeNIe can open and save both formats. It is unstable, however. Conversion is often incomplete.  What else can we try? Thanks,

Jerry

Hi Jerry,

We do not have a tool for converting network specifications between HUGIN format and Netica format.

One option would be to write a simple convertion program using, e.g., Perl or a similar language. I do not think you will be able to make a one-to-one mapping as HUGIN has structures which are not supported by Netica (e.g., Function and Continuous nodes).

You can find a detailed documentation of the HUGIN Network File format in the HUGIN API reference manual chapter 12.

I'm sorry not to be of more help.

Thanks anyway. The worst case scenario is that we manually rebuild networks in Netica (or Hugin). I hope we don't need to do this often though.

Hi Anders,

I wonder whether you know of a conversion tool; maybe someone posted one since you answered the original post?

Best regards,

Hi Marco,

No, unfortunately, I do not know of any conversion tool. How many and how complex are the models you need to convert? I'm assuming you are converting from Netica to HUGIN.
