data, ML: GraphLab & Dato

The O'Reilly Data Show Podcast:
The evolution of GraphLab - O'Reilly Radar
"Carlos Guestrin on the early days of GraphLab and the evolution of GraphLab Create."
...chat with Carlos Guestrin, co-founder/CEO of Dato, a start-up launched by the creators of GraphLab.
Many of the machine learning projects and start-ups I interact with find initial traction in automatic recommender systems. GraphLab is no exception.

GraphLab’s tabular data structure (SFrames) ... caught the attention of many attendees... particularly Pydata users. With an API similar to Pandas, and a growing library of algorithms that are as easy to use
there are other emerging frameworks — like Apache Spark — that are targeting Pydata users

"Your app drives business. From inspiration to production, build intelligent apps fast with the power of Dato's machine learning platform. Data science at scale has never been easier."
