Pretty nifty: Manage and query ML models (and pipelines) across multiple ML modeling tools, including spark.ml. Check out ModelDB, some very cool Big Data work in progress out of +CSAIL MIT by a research team that includes project lead +Manasi Vartak, +Sam Madden and +Matei Zaharia
 
New on the blog: Machine learning (ML) models are an essential tool for data scientists working with Big Data. But building them is an iterative and relatively ad-hoc, inefficient process. Meet ModelDB, a terrific new system created by a team of researchers at +CSAIL MIT. ModelDB simplifies the management of machine learning models and the operations behind them - including the ability to perform simple and complex searches of ML models built with different tools.

The team will be presenting ModelDB at the HILDA workshop (at +SIGMOD 2016) on June 26 and the ML Sys workshop (at +ICML 2016) on June 24. It will be available to the public in Fall 2016. Early access to the code available on request.
By Manasi Vartak, Harihar Subramanyam, Wei-En Lee, Srinidhi Viswanathan, Saadiyah Husnoo, Sam Madden and Matei Zaharia, MIT CSAIL. Building real-world machine learning (ML) algorithms is an iterative process. A data scientist will build many 10s to 100s of models before arriving at one that ...

"Being honest [with potential investors] in Silicon Valley is like being the one member of the Olympic team that isn't on steroids." 
Founders have learned that they need to embellish to get funded, but at what point does making bold claims become an outright lie?

We owe this pioneering woman a lot. From the article: "Unlike the schools of the Ivy League, descended from medieval traditions of academia, the comparatively young MIT was founded to bring science to industry, the arts, and agriculture. This, Nelsen said, gave it a head start on the coming boom of entrepreneurialism — and over the ensuing years, Nelsen’s office grew to become the standard-bearer in the emerging field of tech transfer."
Lita Nelsen of the Technology Licensing Office at MIT became an evangelist for tech transfer and a mentor to her counterparts around the world.

Good advice for corporate journalists and marketing writers, particularly "Start as close to the end as possible."
“Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.”

Which state has the worst drivers - Massachusetts or New York?
New +CSAIL MIT-spawned app (EverDrive) + big data may decide once and for all in a competitive "drive-down."
Arguments over whether Massachusetts or New York has the worst drivers can now be settled with hard data. A new app called EverDrive, developed by MIT

Story
Tagline
Thinker, Marketing Writer & Creative-Communications Problem-Solver for Businesses
Introduction
Janice L. Brown specializes in using communications to position technology ventures, launch new companies and products, and develop industry thought leader programs. I have worked with technology companies since 1979 (beginning with Data General, Prime Computer and Computervision) and with health care, biotechnology and medical devices businesses since 1978. I've  been involved with Internet marketing and social media since 1990 (bulletin boards on CompuServe), and have helped launch online communities, a search engine and a browser.
 
When I'm not working with entrepreneurs, I am thinking about working with entrepreneurs - and sometimes reading, writing for personal enjoyment, cooking, watching films, learning languages, hiking and traveling to places that require at least two airplanes to get there. I also make citizen's arrests for poor grammar and evasive language.
Bragging rights
I am the luckiest consultant in the world. I have worked with some terrific entrepreneurs to help launch several dozen start-ups. My work has won numerous awards. More importantly, many of my clients stay with me for years, bringing me into their next ventures. And often becoming friends.
