Why your Models need Maintenance

People often think a given model can just be put into deployment forever. In fact, the opposite is true. You need to maintain your models like you maintain a machine. Machine Learning models can get off or broken overtime. This sounds odd to you because they have no moving pieces? Well, you might want to have a close look on change and drifts of concept.

The Sudden Interest in Data Science Platforms

For years we've hearing how Big Data will unlock all kinds of insights in a corporation's data. Everyone raced to stand up clusters, jam all kinds of data into them, and then stumble when extracting insight. The cluster became hard to tame, hard to use, and seemed like a big waste of money.

The Web Table Extraction Operator

Data scientists are often confronted with a situation where data must be read from web pages. For instance, there are a lot of data tables available on Wikipedia, which can be utilized but the fine-grained data scraping approaches get complicated for ordinary users as they often require regular expressions based parsing and extraction of data from a web page’s content.

Advanced Reporting Extension published by Old World Computing

Today Old World Computing is happy to announce the Advanced Reporting Extension for RapidMiner. With it's three operators, it looks tiny in comparison to some of the more bulky extensions out there, but it adds operators in a blind spot of RapidMiner and is designed to take away some worries from the common data scientist.

The idea is to use the capabilities of RapidMiner to automate any regular reporting task that results in an Excel sheet. There have been many projects and data science departments that simply drown in these kind of request, consuming all resource before you can get to the really fun part of data science. Now you can simply start at the beginning to create a nearly zero overhead reporting, even if you don't have or can't use real business intelligence tools like tableau or qlik.

Introducing the Operator Toolbox Extension

As RapidMiner users we are used to one operator solutions. Want to add a PCA? Add the operator. Want to do an ensemble? Add the operator. Over time the RapidMiner ecosystem evolved in a way that most tasks are easy to handle like this. However, doing data science every day, I experienced a few things where RapidMiner has no one operator solution. How do we solve that?
