Data scientists can add another tool to their toolset today: GraphLab has launched GraphLab Create 1.0, which bundles up everything starting from tools for data cleaning and engineering through to state-of-the-art machine learning and predictive analytics capabilities.
Think of it, company execs say, as the single platform that data scientists or engineers can leverage to unleash their creativity in building new data products, enabling them to write code at scale on their own laptops. The driving concept behind the solution, they say, is to make large-scale machine learning and predictive analytics easy enough that companies won’t have to hire huge teams of data scientists and engineers and build the big hardware infrastructures that lie behind many of today’s Big Data-intensive products. And, the data scientists and engineers that do use it won’t need to be experts at machine-learning algorithms – just experienced enough to write Python code.
Kevin Casey of Information Week recently wrote, “Old-school organizations will fuel the next swell of data-driven initiatives in IT. So what’s in store for the early movers and, specifically, their big-data professionals? How will the data scientist and similar roles evolve? ‘The role is becoming bigger,’ said Olly Downs, chief scientist at big-data analytics firm Globys, in a recent interview. By bigger, he means in every way — what was once a niche is now, at least in some companies, a driving force.” Read more
Martin Hack, CEO and co-founder of machine learning company Skytree, has a prediction to make: “In the next three to five years we will see a machine learning system in every Fortune 500 company.” In fact, he says, it’s already happening, and not just among the high-tech companies in that ranking but also among the “bread and butter” enterprises.
“They know they need advanced analytics to get ahead in the game or stay competitive,” Hack says. For that, he says, they need machine learning algorithms for analyzing their Big Data sets, and they need to be able to deploy them quickly and easily — even if those who will be doing the deployments are coming from at best a background of basic analytics and business intelligence.
“There just aren’t enough data scientists to go around,” he says. It’s very tough to fill those roles in most companies, he says, “so like it or not, we have to make it much, much easier for people to digest and use this.”

Earlier this month The Semantic Web Blog provided a look at Skytree’s machine learning-as-a-platform approach (see story here). This week, the vendor launched in limited beta a program to help businesses partner up their data scientists and analytics professionals with its software and data scientists. It’s dubbed Second Opinion, and The Semantic Web Blog conducted an email interview with co-founder and CEO Martin Hack about the new effort.
Semantic Web Blog: Is this service available only to existing customers?
Hack: Skytree Second Opinion is for both existing and new customers, essentially everyone interested in gaining firsthand experience with the power of machine learning, and how advanced analytics can give them greater insight into their data.

Semantic Tech: It’s Moving Mainstream, Playing To The Data-Is-An-Asset Crowd, And Living Life Out Loud
At the recent SemTech conference in NYC, The Semantic Web Blog had an opportunity to ask some leaders in the field about where semantic technology has been, and where it’s going.
David Wood, CTO, 3RoundStones:
The short take: Hiring has been on in a big way at semantic tech players as enterprises are moving in greater numbers to buy semantic software, recognizing their traditional vendors won’t solve their interoperability issues. Sem tech vendors should have a happy 2013 as semantics continues going mainstream.
The full take:
