H2O.ai Advances H2O Driverless AI with New Time Series Innovation

New Time Series, Automatic Documentation and Automatic Pipeline Features Enable Better AI Models and Predictive Capabilities for Customers

NEW YORK, June 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- H2O World 2018 – H2O.ai, the open source leader in AI, today announced a new release of its award-winning automated machine learning platform H2O Driverless AI, with key enhancements that will enable organizations to expand their current AI strategy and improve accuracy of predictive datasets. The latest innovations in Driverless AI include time series support aimed at improving predictions within transactional datasets and auto documentation, as well as updated AutoViz, Machine Learning Interpretability (MLI) and Automatic Pipelines.

With the time series capability in Driverless AI, H2O.ai directly addresses some of the most pressing concerns of organizations across industries for use cases such as transactional data in capital markets, tracking in-store and online sales in retail, and using sensor data to improve supply chain or predictive maintenance in manufacturing.

"Time series is all-pervasive. It is not only one of the fastest growing classes of data but also one particularly well-suited for machine learning. Our latest recipes in Driverless AI automate predictions on time series for demand and inventory forecasting for retail stores, tick level predictions in capital markets and electronic trading, greener manufacturing by optimizing supply chains and securing our world with sensor data from IoT," said Sri Ambati, CEO and founder at H2O.ai. "Our mission to democratize machine learning – to make it accessible to every enterprise unable to access the highly sought after talent in data science – is one step closer."

Time Series Helps Forecast Sales, Predict Industrial Machine Failure and More
Driverless AI's time series feature is ideal for transaction, log and sensor data. Some of the key advantages include the ability to:

  • Optimize for almost any prediction time window, whether that be for the next day or the next week
  • Incorporate data from numerous predictors, rather than focusing solely on past time series data
  • Handle gaps in time series data input without negatively impacting predictive modeling
  • Handle missing values, structured character data and high-cardinality categorical variables
  • Generate predictions for both numeric and classification problems

In addition to the new time series support, H2O.ai has also added the following to H2O Driverless AI:

  • AutoDoc is an early-release feature of Driverless AI which generates a document describing the unique experiment pipeline chosen by Driverless AI and the user settings. The report provides insight into the training data and any detected shifts in distribution, the validation schema selected, model parameter tuning, feature evolution and the final set of features chosen during the experiment.
  • Expanded AutoViz capabilities with additional charts and visualizations that enable data scientists to preview and examine a broader range of data sets
  • Automatic Pipeline generation that provides the code needed to deploy scored models in applications on any device
  • data.table for Python is the data munging engine for Driverless AI and is H2O's new project based on the popular open source project in R, data.table. It brings the same features to the growing Python community and enables Python users to benefit from data.table's high performance, superior data processing capabilities, and big data support

H2O Driverless AI empowers data scientists or data analysts to work on projects faster and more efficiently by using automation and state-of-the-art computing power to accomplish tasks that can take humans months in just minutes or hours by delivering automatic feature engineering, model validation, model tuning, model selection and deployment, machine learning interpretability, time-series and automatic pipeline generation for model scoring.

Also today, H2O.ai announced a strategic global partnership with IBM, focused on combining IBM Power Systems and H2O Driverless AI to address the AI demands of enterprises.

Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...

While a hybrid cloud can ease that transition, designing and deploy that hybrid cloud still offers challenges for organizations concerned about lack of available cloud skillsets within their organization.

Serverless Computing or Functions as a Service (FaaS) is gaining momentum. Amazon is fueling the innovation by expanding Lambda to edge devices and content distribution network. IBM, Microsoft, and Google have their own FaaS offerings in the public cloud. There are over half-a-dozen open source serverless projects that are getting the attention of developers.
If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...

When a company wants to develop an application, it must worry about many aspects: selecting the infrastructure, building the technical stack, defining the storage strategy, configuring networks, setting up monitoring and logging, and on top of that, the company needs to worry about high availability, flexibility, scalability, data processing, machine learning, etc. Going to the cloud infrastructure can help you solving these problems to a level, but what if we have a better way to do things. ...
