All in the day:
Anqi Fu, our wickedly smart Math & Data Science hacker-intern from Stanford this summer, was characterizing GLMNet in R on sparse data and comparing with other tools. We were using a data sets predicting Two Bedroom median rent based on neighborhoods from huduser.org.

She found the analysis brisk and surprisingly fast.. Until we got around to checking the data matrix and the factor

Results of her work “Characterizing GLMNet on Sparse Matrices”, will have to wait for a future post!
At H2O.ai, democratizing AI isn’t just an idea. It’s a movement. And that means that it requires action. We started out as a group of like minded individuals in the open source community, collectively driven by the idea that there should be freedom around the creation and use of AI.
Today we have evolved into a global company built by people from a variety of different backgrounds and skill sets, all driven to be part of something greater than ourselves. Our partnerships now extend beyond the open-source community to include business customers, academia, and non-profit organizations.
