Turn-key Kubernetes with data visualization and analytics

There are many reasons why you might choose Kubernetes as your platform for hosting your application(s). In Cloud Foundry, for each application, the platform provides the isolation, OS, runtime, networking and management capabilities. This opinionated environment is ideal for some use cases. Kubernetes provides similar capabilities but gives you the control of the OS, runtime, networking rules of each service, communication between services in your cluster and more.

Closing the loop: the case for building a coherent platform for data science and machine learning

Many organizations have started to explore the value that machine learning can bring—from illuminating previously “dark data” such as images and videos, to creating models that help to guide or even automate business decision-making. However, very few companies have gone beyond pilots and prototypes, or made the transition from one-off projects to a scalable, repeatable workflow. Too often, machine learning exists in a bubble of its own, instead of being understood in the context of the broader data science workflow.

Lifelong (machine) learning: how automation can help your models get smarter over time

Imagine you’re interviewing a new job applicant who graduated top of their class and has a stellar résumé. They know everything there is to know about the job, and has the skills that your business needs. There’s just one catch: from the moment they join your team, they’ve vowed never to learn anything new again. You probably wouldn’t make that hire, because you know that lifeMachine Learning Brainlong learning is vital if someone is going to add long-term value to your team. Yet when we turn to the field of machine learning, we see companies making a similar mistake all the time. Data scientists work hard to develop, train and test new machine learning models and neural networks. However, once the models get deployed, they don’t learn anything new. After a few weeks or months, become static and stale, and their usefulness as a predictive tool deteriorates.
