IBM Seeks Data Science Unity with New Spark-Based ‘Experience’

(ProStockStudio/Shutterstock) IBM today launched what it’s calling the first enterprise application for data science collaboration. Called the Data Science Experience, the free, cloud-based offering is aimed at enabling data scientists to perform tasks like prepping data and building machine learning models in an open and shared environment. Developed on Apache Spark, IBM likens the Data Science Experience to an integrated development environment (IDE) where data scientists have a place to do their work. Data scientists can work with the software, which is largely based on the open source Jupyter notebook, using a variety of languages, including R, Python, and Scala. It also exposes Spark’s machine learning library, called MLlib, as well as IBM’s SystemML (which IBM contributed to Spark last year) and certain SPSS algorithms. The offering is intended to…
