IBM Opens First Machine Learning Hub In India

by CXOtoday News Desk    Aug 03, 2017


IBM has opened its first Machine Learning Hub in India, located in Bengaluru. It is a physical space for organizations to visit for hands-on training on machine learning and artificial intelligence. While there, they will learn from, and collaborate with IBM experts to build and deploy analytic models for a new generation of intelligent applications that learn as they are used.

The Bengaluru machine learning Hub is an addition to the company’s machine learning centers currently operating in Toronto, San Jose, California, at IBM’s Silicon Valley Lab, Beijing, and Boblingen, Germany.

Through these hubs, data professionals, business analysts and engineers work with IBM data science experts to understand and master the leading tools, technologies and techniques needed to visualize, analyze and interpret data.

IBM experts also help visitors build and test rapid, scalable prototypes for fast deployment of their models on their organizations’ enterprises.The hub also provides a platform for like-minded enterprises to collaborate and transform their data science processes.

IBM machine learning creates, trains and deploys a high volume of analytic models to Z system mainframes, a system at the operational core of global transactional processes across retail, banking, insurance and transportation. This is essential as the data scientists (least available among today’s IT skills) – might spend days or weeks developing, testing and retooling a single analytic model. IBM machine learning allows data scientists to automate the creation, training and deployment of operational analytic models that will support; any language (eg. Scala, Java, Python); any popular Machine Learning framework like (eg. Apache SparkML, TensorFlow, H2O); any transactional data type, without the cost, latency or risk of moving data off premise

“IBM Machine Learning hub reiterates our mission to partner and prepare enterprises for the cognitive era by unleashing the potential of machine learning through models that are constantly improving by analyzing new data to generate real-time results which benefit businesses,” said, Gaurav Sharma, Vice President - IBM India Software Labs and Growth – IBM India and South Asia.
