Introducing RapidMiner Real-Time Scoring

Operationalizationor putting models to workis an important part of the data science lifecycle. You might have trained and validated the most accurate model in the world, but if it just stays in the development folder of RapidMiner Studio, it’s not going to deliver much value, is it? Predictive models deliver value when we put them to work and make accurate predictions to mitigate risks, drive customer satisfaction, and help businesses grow.

Sometimes operationalization means periodically applying the model to large amounts of data records to score the risk associated with a portfolio, predict the probability of a user responding to a marketing campaign, or whatever other use case. This can be done by scheduling scoring processes in RapidMiner Server.

Other times predictions need to be interactive, where users can exchange information back and forth between RapidMiner and another application like a data visualization tool. You can do this today by creating a web service for the model in RapidMiner Server.

Lastly, there’s an important use case when predictions need to be delivered in real time. A personal recommendation in a web sitea delivery prediction in a phone appan immediate risk analysis needed by a bank application. In these cases, there’s a need for very low latency and high throughput. That’s what we’ve built with the new RapidMiner Real-Time Scoring.

Key Features of
RapidMiner Real-Time Scoring

The RapidMiner Real-Time Scoring Agent extends RapidMiner Server with a lightweight execution engine designed for specific use cases where speed and volume are critical. Here a few things we’d like to highlight:

  • Real-time scoring agents can indefinitely scale out for demanding use cases, and are easy to deploy and easy to manage.
  • The request latency for retrieving a score is less than 25ms.
  • It uses a modern REST API with JSON as request and response format. It can be called from any application, anywhere.
  • While scoring is the primary use case, any arbitrary process can be deployed in the Scoring Agents. If you need some preparation of the data, filtering, post-processing or anything else, it can be done.

With the new RapidMiner RealTime Scoring, you can turn your predictions into prescriptions, even for the most demanding use cases.

THE FACES OF TODAY’S REPUBLICAN

blank THE FACES OF TODAY’S REPUBLICAN

Illinois governor just made it harder to own guns….. and easier for cops to take them.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) signed legislation empowering police to confiscate firearms from citizens and extending the wait period for gun purchases to 72 hours.
The new waiting period means a single woman being pursued by a stalker now has to hide and/or live behind locked doors for three days while she waits to get a gun for self-defense.

NBC 26 reports that the confiscatory law is called the Firearms Restraining Order Act. By signing it, Rauner made Illinois the 13th state to empower police to confiscate guns and he joined a growing list of Republican governors who signed such laws into place following the February 14, 2018, Parkland high school shooting.

Governors Rick Scott (R-FL), Phil Scott (R-VT), and Larry Hogan (R-MD), signed gun confiscation laws following Parkland.

The problem with these laws is that they would not have stopped the Parkland shooting, because the family with whom the gunman lived actually took up for him when police came to the house after being alerted that he was a possible threat. (Gun confiscation laws require family members to attest to the danger posed by another family member.) Moreover, such laws would have not have prevented the May 18, 2018, Santa Fe High School shooting in Texas because that gunman used someone else’s firearms.

Additionally, the Maryland gun confiscation law certainly did not prevent the June 28, 2018, attack on Annapolis’ Capital Gazette newspaper. Five people were killed in that attack.

blog image This Year’s TIBCO NOW Answers One Simple Question: How Do you Lead with Innovation?

We wanted to share with you how excited we are about our upcoming global event: TIBCO NOW 2018. Our theme this year is “Innovation at the Edge.” Innovation today is not an option. Digital leaders are continually innovating with new business models, customer experiences, and operations.

And with the rise of automated and distributed technologies like IOT, blockchain and AI, more and more innovation will be happening at the “edge” where devices are implanted with sensors and even machine learning models that actually execute rules on the spot based on the data they are receiving at that very moment.

We called the conference“Innovation at the Edge”  because we want to emphasize that you need to innovate to lead and know that today’s truly innovative leaders operate from the edge and embrace it. Eventually, the edge will begin to transform what is happening at the core. Not the other way around.

Hence, TIBCO NOW will inspire you to start leading from the edge.

The edge is where your product meets the customer

The edge is where your product meets the customer environment. That’s a very powerful, new concept. The edge offers you incredible opportunities like making better predictions on the spot, making needed corrections, and over time (through machine learning), learning what is optimal.

At TIBCO NOW, we’ll show you how to build an innovative organization that turns promising ideas into business value using these powerful new technologies. We’ll show you how to scale innovation to make an impact on your business, your ecosystem, and the world.

Our keynote speakers will inspire you and share their perspectives and experiences on how they make innovation work in their companies. Our breakout sessions will show you patterns and use cases to drive innovation in your context. Our education sessions will allow you to learn and be certified on the technologies to bring your innovative product and services to life. And, of course, you’ll be with more than 2,000 peers and partners providing many opportunities to network and have fun!

GE Aviation and Teradata Expand Partnership

CustomerSuccess social share smallest GE Aviation and Teradata Expand Partnership

GE Aviation and Teradata (NYSE: TDC) today announced that GE Aviation will become the exclusive provider of Teradata products and services for commercial aviation markets, providing the world’s biggest airlines with a single, comprehensive framework that combines high-performance analytics in the cloud from Teradata with edge-connectivity services from GE Aviation.
 
Teradata and GE Aviation previously announced a partnership to jointly provide products and services to commercial aviation markets. The two companies are extending this relationship to provide airlines with wide-ranging operational insights that power impactful business decisions.
 
“We can provide the best analytic environment for airline customers by adding Teradata’s powerful analytic solutions with built-in support for hybrid cloud environments,” said John Mansfield, Chief Digital Officer of GE Aviation. “This partnership enables us to bring a holistic framework of enterprise data and business solutions to airlines.”
 
An example of this would be GE Aviation’s FlightPulse application, which will include a connection to Teradata software to enable access to high-performance analytics enterprise-wide. FlightPulse automatically merges complex aircraft data with crew schedules, allowing commercial pilots to visualize personal analytics and conduct their own exploration. Empowered to conduct their own analysis and peer comparisons, pilots discover areas to optimize operations and efficiency, while reducing risk, fuel consumption and carbon emissions. By combining this operational data with passenger-based data within the Teradata system, an airline is able to create a holistic enterprise view of its data and extract meaningful business outcomes.
 
“Operationalizing the analytics that provide high-impact, trusted business outcomes is one of the hardest things to pull off in an enterprise-scale environment,” said Martyn Etherington, Chief Marketing Officer at Teradata. “The first step is often making sure various data silos can communicate, and our partnership with GE Aviation is designed to make this happen almost automatically for the airline industry. Ensuring that these large, global customers have quick access to a powerful, yet flexible, analytics solution like the Teradata Analytics Platform is the second step, and we are delighted that GE Aviation will be offering this product to its customers.”
 
“By expanding our partnership, the aviation market will gain an analytic solution that delivers comprehensive insights. We could not be more excited for the insights we are about to unlock for our customers,” said Andrew Coleman, Chief Commercial Officer for GE Aviation’s Digital Solutions business. “It became clear that, for data and analytics, Teradata excels at the size and scale required by a global airline.”
The Teradata Analytics Platform is a key offering from Teradata, the cloud-based data and analytics leader. It delivers powerful analytic functions and engines, that can be used with multiple data types. Coupled with the tools and languages that each user individually prefers to use, the Teradata Analytics Platform is the future of analytics, delivering secure, scalable, high-performance analytics in the cloud, on-premises or both.
 
For airline customers that are already using GE Aviation for operations, assets, and network management, adding the Teradata Analytics Platform would deliver enterprise-wide insights with results ranging from improved flight operations and predictive maintenance to increased operational efficiencies and higher customer satisfaction.
 
Via its extended partnership, Teradata and GE Aviation are particularly well positioned to enhance the aviation analytics market, which Markets and Markets Research estimates is a $ 2.16 billion industry that will grow to an estimated $ 4.23 billion by 2021.

About GE Aviation:
GE Aviation is part of GE (NYSE: GE), the world’s Digital Industrial Company, transforming industry with software-defined machines and solutions that are connected, responsive and predictive. With people, services, technology and scale, GE delivers better outcomes for customers by speaking the language of industry.  www.geaviation.com/digital
