“We are continuing to align GridBank with the growing demands of the information economy to deliver a future proof data centric solution for organizations. “
We sat down with Cristian Borcea, PhD from the New Jersey Institute of Technology to discuss the IoT and Big Data applications. “New machine learning techniques could help us extract knowledge from these data – this happens especially for knowledge that we don’t expect and we don’t even know exists – we cannot search for something that we don’t know exists.”
OneFold believes that the expertise of a data scientist should be used for solving the most complex of analysis and not for the more day-to-day aspects of data extraction. The company uses a plug and play DHQL platform for automated data extraction, transformation, querying and reporting. Navneet Aron and Uday Sandhar, co-founders of OneFold, teamed up to answer our questions about this intriguing technology.
Global education giant Pearson uses data science to make their products better especially for student outcomes. The video below features a recent Cloud episode of Google Developers Live, with Felipe Hoffa hosting Pearson’s Director of Data Science Collin Sellman, to celebrate Python Pandas release 0.13 and its Google BigQuery connector. Jacob Schaer and Sean Schaefer join them to demo its capabilities, and how Pearson uses data science to improve education.
Paradigm4 is the company behind SciDB, a scalable array database with native complex analytics. CEO Marilyn Matz is an expert in the field of big data, after co-founding Cognex Corp in 1981. Marilyn has some interesting perspectives as to why Hadoop might not always be the correct choice for big data deployments. I recently caught up with Marilyn to discuss these views.
“SAS In-Memory Statistics for Hadoop software enables multiple users to concurrently manage and prepare data stored in Hadoop, explore and visualize this data, develop accurate statistical and machine learning models quickly, as well as access, deploy and execute these models in their Hadoop ecosystem.”
We caught up with Mike Boros, Hadoop Product Manager at Cray, to learn about the company’s Big Data solutions. “I think you’ll see Cray continue to focus on Big & Fast, vs. just Big Data. Technologies like Hadoop make hosting large data sets easy. The challenge of getting value from that data set, after it’s large, is what we’re interested in.”
