IBM opens first ‘machine learning hub’ in India

IBM OpenPOWER research facility

IBM has opened its first Machine Learning (ML) Hub in Bangalore, India.

The Bengaluru ML Hub adds to the company’s growing stable of ML Hubs, currently operating in Toronto, San Jose, California, at IBM’s Silicon Valley Lab, Beijing, and Boblingen, Germany. Through the Hubs, data professionals, business analysts, and engineers work with IBM data science experts to understand and master the leading tools, technologies, and techniques needed to visualize, analyze and interpret data. IBM experts also help visitors build and test rapid, scalable prototypes for fast deployment of their models on their organizations’ enterprises.

The hub also provides a platform for like-minded enterprises to collaborate and transform their data science processes.

Machine Learning is gaining popularity to deal with increasingly complex data and analysis problems. By 2018, 75% of enterprise and ISV development globally will include cognitive/Al or machine learning functionality in at least one application, including all business analytics tools.1

In addition, Gartner forecasts the highest growth in India IT spending in software and IT services for 2017 which includes building new digital platforms with ML and Artificial Intelligence at the center 2.

IBM ML continuously creates, trains and deploys a high volume of analytic models to Z system mainframes, a system at the operational core of global transactional processes across retail, banking, insurance, and transportation. This is essential as the data scientists (least available among today’s IT skills3) – might spend days or weeks developing, testing and retooling a single analytic model. IBM ML allows data scientists to automate the creation, training, and deployment of operational analytic models that will support:
• Any language (eg. Scala, Java, Python),
• Any popular Machine Learning framework like (eg. Apache SparkML, TensorFlow, H2O)
• Any transactional data type
• Without the cost, latency or risk of moving data off premise

“IBM Machine Learning hub reiterates our mission to partner and prepare enterprises for the cognitive era by unleashing the potential of machine learning through models that are constantly improving by analyzing new data to generate real-time results which benefit businesses,” said Gaurav Sharma, VP (IBM India Software Labs and Growth), IBM India and South Asia.
