MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today H2O.ai, the leader in open source machine learning for smarter applications, announces the availability of the company’s Sparkling Water™ for Python developers. Through the new API, application developers are now able to harness the power of data science with H2O’s best in class in-memory machine learning and deep learning algorithms to build intelligent applications.
“Sparkling Water brings best of breed open source for machine learning on big data,” says SriSatish Ambati, CEO and co-founder, H2O.ai. “Python is like the jazz movement in machine learning to R is like classical music - With Sparkling Water developers can use packages in Scikit, H2O, Spark SQL, ML, packages in R and Pandas in a unified polyglot experience – all without having to rebuild the pipelines and data workflows in each environment.”
For many developers, implementing robust data science methodologies is difficult without an in-house data scientist to develop algorithms to test and train models. Engineers need out of the box power tools to leverage machine learning and deep learning – to build smartness into their business applications. Sparkling Water for Python unifies and extends audience for scalable machine learning.
Python is one of the fastest growing communities in machine learning..The Python API gives application programmers the tools to rapidly utilize the fast scalable machine learning capabilities within Sparkling Water. Along with the release of the API, Sparkling Water has been updated to include:
- Native iPython Notebook support for single UI utilization
Flow – an augmented iPython Notebook style interactive web interface
for CoffeeScript, R and Scala users.
- Accelerating Python interactive sessions with Sparkling Water, with Spark driving SQL queries
Tighter and transparent integration with H2O's Sparkling Water package
so that Spark and Python developers can utilize the state-of-the-art
ML algorithms in H2O
- Feature engineering, Data Munging and math expressions at scale & speed.
- New pip installation package available on pypi at: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/h2o/0.0.0a5.
