Today Senzari® introduced MusicGraph.ai, the first web-based graph analytics and intelligence engine for the music industry at the GraphLab Conference 2014, the annual gathering of leading data scientists and machine learning experts. MusicGraph.ai will serve as the primary dashboard for MusicGraph®, where API clients will be able to view detailed reports on their API usage and manage their account. More importantly, through this dashboard, they will also be able to access a comprehensive library of algorithms to extract even more value from the world’s most extensive repository of music data.
“We believe MusicGraph.ai will forever change the music intelligence industry, as it allows scientists to execute powerful analytics and machine learning algorithms at scale on a huge data-set without the need to write a single-line of code,” explained Demian Bellumio, COO of Senzari. In the coming weeks, Senzari’s MusicGraph API clients - which includes hundreds of companies, including streaming service providers, record labels, and music researchers - will be able to login, select the data they want, choose from dozens of proven algorithms, and run them on an elastic computing environment with as many machines as they wish - all within just a few minutes. “No more time and money wasted on finding, cleansing, and storing this hard-to-find music data, and especially, on the engineering effort needed to operate these complex graph computing infrastructure - which require deep domain expertise and PhD-level talent,” Bellumio said.
MusicGraph.ai seamlessly integrates leading Big Data technologies, including Titan® with Cassandra® and Elasticsearh® for the distributed graph database system, Hadoop® and Spark® for parallel processing, and GraphLab® and GraphX as algorithmic engines. The algorithms will be divided in two distinct sets, Analytics and Intelligence. Analytics will initially include a set of popular “graph analytics” algorithms such as PageRank, connected components, and triangle counting. Intelligence will incorporate powerful “machine learning” algorithms, such as collaborative filtering, k-means, logistic regression, and support vector machines (SVMs). In some instances, the user will be able to run the same algorithm from multiple engines, like GraphLab and GraphX, to compare the results and performance across them. In terms of real-world use cases for MusicGraph.ai, data scientists can leverage it to enhance or develop music recommendation services, identify data anomalies, and perform community detection within their networks, among other applications, all in an automated and highly scalable way.
“MusicGraph.ai dramatically opens up the market potential of Senzari’s MusicGraph, as we are now not only providing industry leading data and music recommendations services to our partners, but we’ll now offer unparalleled access to Big Data infrastructure and tools that they can use to derive actionable data from billions of data points that connect the content and users,” commented Bill Hajjar, CEO of Senzari. “We believe that in MusicGraph’s first iteration we democratized music data access, and now, with MusicGraph.ai, we are democratizing music knowledge. Most impressively, our team was able to make this leap possible in just months, not years.”

Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...

If cloud computing benefits are so clear, why have so few enterprises migrated their mission-critical apps? The answer is often inertia and FUD. No one ever got fired for not moving to the cloud - not yet. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Michael Hoch, SVP, Cloud Advisory Service at Virtustream, discussed the six key steps to justify and execute your MCA cloud migration.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
