The software tool CI-LQD (Computational Intelligence for Low Quality Data) is introduced in this paper. CI-LQD is an ongoing project that includes a lightweight open source software that has been designed with scientific and teaching purposes in mind. The main usefulness of the software is to automate the calculations involved in the statistical comparisons of different algorithms, with both numerical and graphical techniques, when the available information is interval-valued, fuzzy, incomplete or otherwise vague. A growing catalog of evolutionary algorithms for learning classifiers, models and association rules, along with their corresponding data conditioning and preprocessing techniques, is included. A demonstrative example of the tool is described that illustrates the capabilities of the software.
