And that the plethora of special-purpose options available from certain cloud providers is reasonable to manage. That’s all BUNK. The reality is that navigating the choices, figuring out how to use them effectively, and dealing with the ETL and inevitable data sprawl, is so…

What is Machine Learning? Machine learning (ML) is a method of analyzing data using an analytical model that is built automatically, or “learned”, from training data. The idea is that the model gets better as you feed it more data points, enabling your algorithm to automatically get better over time. Machine learning has two distinct steps, training, and operationalization. Training takes a data set you know a lot about (known as a training set), then explores the data set to find patterns, and…
