Our research group is working in Data Analytics, where predictive modelling play an important role.
Predictive modelling is an important process by which a model is created or chosen to try to best predict the probability of an outcome. Most often the event one wants to predict is in the future, but predictive modelling can be applied to any type of unknown event, regardless of when it occurred. Now, you can use an increasing number of API products offering predictive analytics services that make it easier to create and deploy predictive models in your business or in your app.
Last year I invited as a guest lecture in one of my courses one of them,BigML. Together with Google Prediction API were the only ones I knew. However, as Louis Dorard explains in his blog, there are many more great tools actually in this space (some of which only came out this year) Datagami, Dataiku, Indico, Intuitics, Graphlab, Openscoring,PredicionIO, Rapidminer, Yhat…
What better way to learn how to use them than from the very people who made them, through hands-on sessions illustrated with concrete case studies? Well, that’s what’s waiting for you at PAPIs.io on 17 and 18 November at UPC campus in Barcelona — right before Strata conference.
The Predictive APIs and Apps conference — PAPIs.io — is the first of its kind, aimed at giving voice to the increasing number of API products offering predictive analytics services. Our research group is collaborating in the organisation of this important workshop. Check out the full schedule and list of speakers on Lanyrd or you can download the PDF with the information. If you are interested to attend you can register online.
Hoping to meet you in person soon in Barcelona!
