MOA is an open source framework for data stream mining. It includes a collection of machine learning algorithms (classification, regression, clustering, outlier detection and recommender systems) and tools for evaluation. Related to the WEKA project, MOA is also written in Java, while scaling to more demanding problems http://moa.cms.waikato.ac.nz/
How can MOA help you? MOA performs BIG DATA stream mining in real time, and large scale machine learning. MOA can be easily used with Hadoop, S4 or Storm, and extended with new mining algorithms, and new stream generators or evaluation measures. The goal is to provide a benchmark suite for the ...

I am in Washington today to announce a large initiative involving NYU, the University of Washington and UC Berkeley.
The 5 year initiative is funded by a $37.8M grant from the Sloan Foundation and the Moore Foundation.

I am the lead faculty for NYU. My counterpart at UW is +Ed Lazowska and at Berkeley +Saul Perlmutter.

The initiative is called the Moore/Sloan Data Science Environments. It seeks to jump-start 'data-intensive science and discovery'.

And we are hiring: faculty, data science postdoctoral fellows, and data science tool builders.

Update: article at the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/vicki-chandler/a-bold-experiment-to-tack_b_4255809.html

Moore Foundation press release: http://www.moore.org/programs/science/data-driven-discovery/data-science-environments

Sloan Foundation press release: http://www.sloan.org/fileadmin/media/files/press_releases/datascience.pdf


A new partnership is intended to foster the sharing of data analysis ideas and methods across different academic disciplines.
