    Training a Machine Brain, the Four Pillars Artificial Intelligence of Pentaho

    artificial intelligence

    The Pentaho BI Suite is the most popular BI suite in the world and Pentaho data integration catered to all state-of-the-art solutions offerings to customers worldwide.

    The power of Pentaho Data Integration or PDI for accessing data, blending and governance has been documented and demonstrated a lot of times. Nonetheless, probably less well known is how the PDI as a platform, with all its data power is ideally suited for orchestrating and automating the three stages of the CRISP-DM life-cycle for a data science practitioner, such as generic data preparation/feature engineering, model deployment and predictive modeling.

    Building the future of Business Analytics
    Pentaho and the Pentaho software is building the future of business analytics. The open source heritage of Pentaho drives continued innovation in an integrated, modern, embeddable platform that’s built for accessing all sources of data. With support for all leading Hadoop distributions, high performance analytical databases and NoSQL databases, Pentaho offers the widest support for big data analytics and an orchestration and integration of big data as well as traditional sources.

    Integrated Data is Accesible Data
    The relevance of data integration is obvious to anyone who spent time fetching information from numerous systems for a basic report. When a business grows, the demands on information systems grow as well. New revenue streams, additional locations and changing priorities will impact the form that a data take. Moreover, a lot of businesses rely on legacy systems to provide historical data from sources that may no longer exist. Data integration frees employees to focus on forecasting and analysis, tasks which need human touch. Also, it greatly reduces the chances for errors to be introduced in the data translation process.

    A business analytics software depends on accurate integration of data to create visualizations, dashboards and reports, which reflect consistent, accurate information. Failure to clean up data will result in questions on useless apples-to-oranges comparisons. The diversity and volume challenges made by big data make effective integration much more important.
    It’s important to realize that data siloes could result in inefficiencies in operations that could affect the growth of a business and its agility. From inaccurate reporting to money and resources wasted, siloed data could lead to poor decision-making, affecting profitability and efficiency.

    Pentaho’s Four Pillars of Artificial Intelligence
    Today, in its guise as a Hitachi Group Company, Pentaho continues its job to be a data analytics business. Focusing on an area that could be labeled as ‘information orchestration’, the company aims to help organizations to better navigate and direct their machine learning.
    With machine learning living at the heart of a new understanding of AI as it does, there’s a true need for IT departments to train, tune, test and to deploy predictive models that they are using to build what is called ‘automation intelligence’ and make artificial intelligence for business happen. What Pentaho is doing is focused primarily on collaboration. The company insists that most organizations trying to use machine learning automation and AI usually struggle to put predictive models to work since data professionals operate often in silos and the workflow, from preparing data to updating models, ends up making bottlenecks.


    Four Lobes of a Machine Brain

    Pentaho’s Data Integration and analytics platform aims on ending the ‘gridlock’ associated with machine learning through enabling a smoother team collaboration. The company states that its reach in the field spans four pillars that in effect, nearly come to represent the four lobes of a machine brain.
    1. Data and feature engineering. Tools to help data engineers and scientists prepare and blend traditional sources of data, such as EAM, ERP and big data sources, like social media and sensors. Also, Pentaho addressed the ‘notoriously different’ task of the so-called feature engineering through automating data onboarding, data validation and data transformation.
    2. Model deployment and operationalization. A thoroughly trained, tuned as well as tested machine learning model still has to be deployed. Pentaho aims in letting data professionals embed models that are developed by data scientist in a data workflow directly. This way, they could actually begin to use AI for business and utilize ‘embeddable API’s to be able to put the power across the whole base of apps in an organization.
    3. Model training, tuning and testing. Often, data scientists apply trial and error method so trike the correct balance of performance, complexity and accuracy in models. With machine learning packages such as Weka, Spark MLlib, Pentaho states that it enables data scientists to train, to tune, build and test models much faster.
    4. Regularly update models. Less than a third of companies use an automated process for updating their models. Pentaho is working to help in re-training existing models with new sets of data or make feature updates with custom execution steps.

    Business Intelligence
    The BI niche is showing a brand new life, which was not apparent when first launched. What once was an extremely archaic, complicated and confusing discipline has witnessed an almost-complete transformation as a result of big data and next generation artificial intelligence. Data analytics are so ingrained to the modern field of BI, which the two terms are almost interchangeable. In reality, business intelligence and the analysts in the profession, rely on advanced data analytics for supporting their decision-making process.
    This year, the lines between artificial intelligence and business intelligence would blur even more. Thanks to the present capabilities of machine-learning systems, which are capable of determining habits, patterns and trends, human decision-makers may soon be a thing of the past.

    Artificial Intelligence is truly happening
    The technologies are happening. It is real artificial intelligence and machine learning for business. It real use of the word ‘automation’ signifies automatic execution of business processes, which do not need a real person to be present with the feeble human level of making decisions. The question of how to train computer brains at the intersection of business and technology could well provide some early indicators as to how far the advancements would go in the future.

    AI and Pentaho Data Integration provide business advantages to organizations big and small.

    Samsung will integrate the New Metal 12 for Future Phones and Wearables

    samsung metal 12

    Samsung is using the Android platform for its numerous devices. Top Android app developers in Australia have a team of technically-sound Android experts with best-in-class skills and with in-depth understanding of the fundamentals needed to create applications for an array of Android-enabled devices. Furthermore, the developers are engrosses in the development of highly robust, scalable Android mobile apps.

    When in the market for a new phone today, the choices available at present are pretty good. Samsung is a major and experienced mobile phone manufacturer. The company’s been engaged in the business for some time, producing devices of high quality. The popularity of Samsung smart phones always has been strong because of a many factors, such as using the latest tech innovations as well as a competitive price policy. Aside from that, the Korean company updates or changes their line-ups regularly since they study the market closely to determine the most essential desires of the customers.


    SAMSUNG IN 2018

    Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ would be the baddest and biggest of the phones for this year, continuing to perfect what so far has shaped up to be the best phones of 2017. Performance would definitely get a boost and Samsung may finally go above the 4GB or RAM seen in the previous flagships. The design won’t likely change considerably, and hopefully neither would the price. A bendable phone would finally become a reality early this year if rumors are to be believed. Galaxy Note X, known previously as Project Valley is considered to be a smart phone that has a dual-screen on each side, which folds out to reveal a 7-inch tablet. There has also been a rumor about an 8-inch tablet that folds up to into a 5-inch phone.

    Samsung Galaxy S9 would feature a variable aperture rear camera. Both Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 are expected to be unveiled during the MWC trade show. Samsung now has filed a trademark for the Metal 12 term and filing suggests that the durable material could also be used for future Galaxy as well as gear devices.



    The New Metal 12, a new and durable alloy that is comprise of magnesium and aluminum is expected to be used in the future of Samsung phones, wearable and even other devices, based on the latest trademark filing called ‘Metal 12’. Future smart phones could still be very brittle from the display side, but overall chassis can be even more lightweight and more durable than before.

    Samsung’s Metal 12 is being used already in the Notebook 9. The trademark filing reveals that the Metal 12 is a very lightweight and durable magnesium-aluminum alloy. The first consumer product which features such material was Notebook 9 and provides it a premium feel, while making it extremely lightweight as well, which result in a portable machine within the fingertips. Although a smart phone is not really an encumbrance for users, using the alloy can make it more durable, enabling it to strongly resist scuffs as well as other marks. The material may be used for future wearables, or specifically, on the Gear series of smart watches. However, this has to be confirmed yet, but Samsung’s been using it on Notebook 9.

    Samsung Metal 12 has been introduced to the world as a magnesium-aluminum alloy it created. The first outing of the material on a consumer produce is with the recently unveiled Notebook 9. The new material boosts of the portability of the notebook because of its lightweight properties. Samsung has filed for a trademark with the European Union Intellectual Property Office in order to protect the Metal 12 moniker. The filing reveals that Samsung is not ruling out the probability of using the Metal 12 for devices, such as smart watches and smart phones.

     Rumors on Samsung using magnesium for its flagship Galaxy S smartphones have been around for years. Previous reports revealed that the firm possibly tested a prototype of the Galaxy S7, which is made from magnesium alloy. It’s not likely that Metal 12 would be used for Galaxy S9 oven Galaxy Note 9 for that matter. What the trademark registration does is to cover Samsung until a time that it actually decides to use the material for other products, like smart phones and smart watches.


    In today’s high tech world, the demand for mobile devices and applications has never been greater. Android app development services are high in demand. When it comes to smart phones and devices, at the end of the day, one always need a smart phone that answers to the utmost desires of consumers instantly. And Samsung delivers consumer demands.
