Our data, our math // our tools, our science!RSS Share Category: Uncategorized [EN]
Big data has always been with us. Our race's answer to data explosion was through math & computation. Whether it was Newton's calculus, Einstein's Relativity or Shannon's Information Theory, each generation's answer to it's big data problem arose from it's best and brightest.
Our generation's challenge is here. Our lives are mired in data.
If wall st & adsense are any indicators: algorithms are here to rule business & personal world.
Google & Goldman Sachs have the best and brightest minds of our time in a race for the better algorithms on big data.
So what's the rest of the ecosystem and mere mortals, gotta do?
Use expensive, closed & essentially broken tool chain or an opensource that doesn't scale or slow.
H2O brings the best of breed algorithms of the day and the legos to extend & build new ones to the world in open source. Our vision is to make it possible to scale any math algorithm using fast in-memory distributed system. Our team has been fast at work and has been winning hearts of data scientists and early customers.
With tight-knit integration into R, Python, Scala or Excel (“No new API”) – For example, we become a simple library(h2o) in R – Data scientist can connect to vast data sources & clusters of hadoop, s3, nosql or sql seamlessly and model data with sophisticated algorithms. API users can extend and build simple yet powerful predictive applications.
The data “exhaust” that gets talked about is our data – democratizing the tool chain for discovery is our responsibility to future generations. At 0xdata, we are crazy enough to think we can change the world. One algorithm at a time. A truly passionate team (+ advisors) have been making waves and partnering with the earliest customers & users.
Our mission: To empower data scientific pursuit to unlock nature's treasured secrets in our personal lives, our businesses and our world. And harness computational speed and power to model data in a few clicks.
No product vision is complete without it's community of customers and users.
Math touches every phase of life and can literally help save our race.
Come join us in our movement – The stakes are high.
