The Future of Data Science
What does the future of data science look like? If you’re Forrester analyst Mike Gualtieri, the future of data science is all about predictive models—lots of them running in semi-automated fashion at truly massive scale. Gualtieri laid out his vision on the future of data science and the role that data scientists will play in it during a recent webinar sponsored by Skytree, a developer of software for automating predictive analytics using machine learning models. That in itself should give you a hint as to where the Forrester analyst was going with his predictions.

“They’ve got to the point where it affects human lives, for example by denying someone credit. There are regulations that force credit card companies to explain to the credit applicant why they were denied. So, by law, machine learning has to be explainable to the everyman. The regulation only exists for the financial industry but our prediction is you will see that everywhere, as machine learning inevitably and quickly makes its way into every critical problem of human society.” – Alex Gray, Ph.D., CTO at Skytree
Gregory Piatetsky via KDnuggets We discuss how Skytree compares with competition, how does it perform relative to expert Data Scientists, how does Skytree Automodel compare to Deep Learning, and more. Skytree recently released a free easy-to-use machine learning interfaces, which include Python SDK and REST API, and GUI, as well as Unix command line interface.

via Data Science at NYU The Center for Data Science’s own Vasant Dhar has said the problem with data science is no longer collecting data, but finding the right tools to analyze that data. Skytree, a machine learning software presented by Nick Ball and Alexander Gray at the Moore Sloan Data Science Environment, touts itself as making advanced data mining of large datasets available to everyone, not just data scientists.
