Machine Learning as a Service: How Data Science Is Hitting the Masses

Machine learning is an enigma to most. For decades it’s a been a field dominated by scientists and the few organizations with enough computing power to run complex algorithms against huge datasets. But now the world of machine learning and predictive analytics is opening up to developers and companies of all sizes, with machine learning (ML) providers offering their products through a subscription-based model or open sourcing some of their technology. These new ML providers comprise a predictive analytics industry worth anything between $5-10 billion, depending on the source. There’s something for everyone: a developer who wants to build predictive analytics into their application, a customer success team that needs to know which accounts are likely to churn, a data scientist looking to run models on faster and cheaper infrastructure.…
