Skytree® is a startup that focuses on using machine learning to help organizations translate the massive amounts of data they are accumulating into actionable intelligence, with the aim of making more accurate decisions for their businesses going forwards.
Apply artificial intelligence to answer your big data questions. Machine learning involves the creation of algorithms that allow for the analysis of massive data sets that traditional BI tools cannot handle. A form of artificial intelligence, the complex algorithms literally allow for “learning”. The more data that is analyzed over time, the smarter and more accurate the algorithms become. It’s an iterative learning process of continuous improvement akin to the Japanese concept of Kaizen in manufacturing. So whether you are an online dating company seeking to best match couples and personalize pricing scenarios, a residential property services company aiming to predict market valuations, a media company matching buyers and sellers through ad arbitrage, or indeed measuring distances to galaxies, running Skytree on top of your MapR® Apache™ Hadoop® platform will rapidly deliver big answers to your big data questions.
Enterprise-class predictive modeling across massive data sets requires a scalable, integrated architecture that combines complex, self-improving algorithmic capability with a reliable, robust and dependable Apache Hadoop platform— highly available, 24x7.
The Skytree and MapR solution offers exactly that—a potent and compelling big data platform to reliably underpin the iterative processes native to machine learning.
Once Skytree Server is set up on top of users’ data sets, the product is extremely easy to use. An enterprise IT professional or data scientist can use it with ease once installed. To borrow a term from cloud computing, the Skytree intelligence is “abstracted” from the user—all of the magic operates “under the covers” once it’s connected to the underlying data sources.
MapR provides several key advantages to make analytics professionals more productive. MapR snapshots and volumes allow users to build and test models on the same cluster for production data without impacting operations. This also allows for easy versioning of models and back-testing against historical data sets. In addition, unlike other distributions for Hadoop, only MapR provide a fully read-write data platform which allows existing applications, custom libraries, and modeling languages, and scripts (e.g., Grep, Git) to work out of the box. Moreover, data movement is quick and easy with MapR Direct Access NFS™ without requiring a separate cluster for data ingest
