    Hi Ash! Happy to see a fellow Londoner here - welcome to the Community.

    Not unfortunate at all - having less experienced people here to let us know if we are being unhelpfully technical is fantastic!

    My name is Kevin DeHoff.

    I live and work in the Orlando, FL area (and I'm not entirely sure if I'm allowed to share the company name, so I won't).

    I have a Ph.D. in Statistics and hold a role as a Data Scientist.

    My duties include building predictive models and improving automation methods.

    I have been using Dataiku extensively between evaluation, community, and full versions for approximately 3 years.

    Hi Tom, welcome to the community! Great to have you with us.

    You have made me curious now - what's the most important factor in museum attendance?

    Also great flower! I'm feeling highly inadequate in my card giving now.

    We have discovered a number of features that are significant to museums, they include:

    • Weather
      • Precipitation
      • Humidity
      • Temperature
        • Cold
        • Hot
    • Holiday and School Calendars
    • Time of year to some extent

    We have discovered some others but those are important features when it comes to predicting "walk-up" attendance. We tested on the order of 300 features. Some common sense, some synthetic.

    We are working on operationalizing this model over three time periods.

    It is interesting to me that you see a flower in the results. I see a candle. However, I know that I made the image from a candle and several hundred images by O'Keeffe

    Here is another.

    Style Seagull O'Keeffe 12_11 +100-1024px-144-5.jpeg

    This is based on a seagull. That is showing it's dinosaur background. Through the style transfer from O'Keeffe again.

    Have a great day.

    My name is Aaron Crouch, I am Data Analytics Manager for Atlantic Plant Maintenance, a wholly owned affiliate of GE Power. We are located in Pasadena, Texas (South East of Houston).

    We purchased DataIku to flag jobs where we believe a safety or quality defect will occur. We currently have 85% accuracy in picking which jobs will have an incident before the job starts.

    As of last week, we developed an intervention plan for job sites deemed high risk, and are working on how to measure effectiveness of our plan.

    Hi all!

    My name is Tim Dickinson. I'm based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in eastern Canada. I'm actually looking for a new role and organization right now, but am really interested in what Dataiku is doing so thought I'd join the community. I have not had a lot of data analytics work experience so far: mostly some old-school BI tools plus some self-taught R (from Coursera) for fun.

    Full disclosure: I worked with @KerriW
    a little bit in our previous lives.

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Ben, I live and work in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside in the UK. I am currently Data Science Manager for the online clothing and sports wear retailer MandM Direct.

    Here at MandM we do a lot of work around understanding our customers, and actioning data to improve our marketing communications and advertising spend. I have skilled up in the data science in the past couple of years, as the business has accumulated more data and has needed to look for smarter, faster ways to extract value from it.

    We've come a long way over the last couple of years and DataIKU is the next exciting step in us embedding data science and machine learning into business action and decision making every single day.

    Look forward to learning with you all,
    Ben

    Hi everyone,

    My name is David, I'm running a start-up on diverse IT projects include AI and machine learning, in Sydney, Australia.

    I try to introduce a new methodology of AI and machine learning, I call it Advanced Machine Learning; I hope it can solve the AI crisis (like killer bots mentioned in DataIku proportional video), and help human development greatly.

    Currently I look for partners to build some useful working machine learning applications.

    Welcome @David_Yu_20
    ! Thanks for being a part of the Community.

    Can you tell me a bit more about your new methodology?

    Good luck on your hunt for partners!

    Hi Michael,

    The methodology I use is to put a programmable middle layer in neural networks like Markov Chain or Boltzmann Machine; making human-computer interactions more scalable and machine learning could become machine educating (human can extract valuable information from big data). For instance, if you want to build light speed spaceship, you can let AI teach you how to build it..

    At this stage, we only co-work with our trusted partners, and there are many technical details involved if we start to cooperate. I'm always willing to discuss.

    Cheers,

    Hi all,

    I’m Mani, a Freelance Software, Data and ML engineer, Java developer by heart by a polyglot by trade and skills.

    I’m a fan of many things, and Dataiku is one of them hence decided to join this forum. As you have guessed Data, Data Science, NLP and Machine Learning are my favourite topics, taking into mind Performance and other things which you can find in my detailed outline about myself here. Not just runtime HW/SW performance but also model performance and explainability.

    I use many tools for the end-to-end process and Dataiku is among them in the pipeline.

    I take great interest in GraalVM and Truffle (see my work on https://github.com/neomatrix369/awesome-graal), alongside also a strong enthusiast of AI/ML/DL (see https://github.com/neomatrix369/awesome-ai-ml-dl) - I learn and share my knowledge through these repositories and via LinkedIn and Twitter as well.

    Happy to answer questions about anything in my area of expertise and most importantly I’m here to also learn and discuss other topics that this forum focusses on.

    Thank you and please reach out if you like to chat some more.

    Regards,
    Mani

    Hello all,
    I am in switzerland an I am master's student.

    I use Dataiku for deeplearning and I have a problem.

    1) Deeplearning and cpu only is : wait wait wait wait and wait.
    2) I am windows user and I have a good pc gamer but I cannot use dataiku natively (only vm).

    my presence here is for build a bootable usb stick with linux and dataiku for use gpu of my pc gamer.
    By this way I can use GPU in dataiku without destroying my windows installation or buy new expensive computer only for that.

    If someone is interested, you can help me to do that.

    @BenGonGon

    I understand that DL runs slow on CPU.

    Dataiku is really a native Linux application suite. It does not run directly on Windows that's why the virtual machine is offered as one option. You will definitely loose some performance using a VM, and I'm not clear if you will be able to successfully expose the GPU to the VM if you end up going the VM way.

    Your idea of dual boot your computer into Linux and Windows seems like a good idea. How are you with basic computer repairs. Opening the case, adding an removing hard drives. Maybe using a second real SSD rather than what is likely to be a slower USB Stick might be a better idea. This might represent an answer for you. I think that you would be most likely to be able to get linux drivers that will allow you to access your GPU. In this case, you would have to boot into a real Linux when you want to do some DL, reboot into Windows when you have to use an MS Application. However, using a separate drive would allow you to protect your MS Windows drive. In fact while setting up you could open your computer and remove the Windows drive in order to avoid the risk of corruption.

    As an alternative Using DSS with WLS2 might be a possibility

    Here is some documentation

    https://www.dataiku.com/de/product/get-started/windows/

    I don't know what will happen with GPU drivers under WLS2.

    Here is another maybe cautionary note from the community about WLS

    https://community.dataiku.com/t5/Setup-Configuration/Unable-start-dataiku-server/m-p/8737

    There is a long thread on using DSS on a laptop that has a somewhat related discussion.

    https://community.dataiku.com/t5/Setup-Configuration/It-s-time-for-a-new-Laptop-What-would-you-do/m-p/6890

    Please let us know how you get on with this.

    I've not actually solved this problem. How have others solved the GPU and DSS on a Designer Node? I personally would love to hear how folks are working out these challenges.

    Here is some GPU setup documentation.
