Startups Offer Easy Access to Machine Learning

Over at GigaOM, Derrick Harris writes that there are now more choices for businesses that want out-of-the-box functionality for machine learning, predictive analytics and general data science.

An offspring of Greenplum (former Greenplum parent company EMC is an investor, in fact), Alpine Data Labs is doing what amounts to Microsoft Visio for predictive analytics. Its software sits right inside a company’s data store (that can be Hadoop or any number of popular databases) and lets users analyze the data by drawing flow charts. It’s a little more complex than just pulling down a menu and selecting “cluster,” but it’s a whole lot easier than trying to code those functions.

Harris also looks at Context RelevantDatameerSkytree, and Wise.io.
