Machine Overtakes Man’s Big Data Analysis Intuition with Predictive Power

Big-data analysis crucial for its predictive power but confined to human intuition till now has been overtaken by computer systems that may effectively business analytics, a fast growing field in IT software arena. MIT researchers, Max Kanter and his guide Kalyan Veeramachaneni, have succeeded to take on the human element out of big-data analysis, with their new system that not only searches for patterns but designs the feature set, too and they have displayed their prototype in three data science competitions, in which it competed against human teams. Of the 906 teams participating in the 3 competitions, the researchers’ “Data Science Machine” finished ahead of 615 and in 2 of the 3 competitions, the predictions made by the Data Science Machine were 94% and 96% as accurate as the winning submissions.…
