To make it easier run complex analytics, researchers at MIT have developed a “virtual data scientist” that leverages user-friendly interfaces to generate machine-learning models for making predictions from datasets.
VDS is a new component of the Northstar interactive cloud-based data-science platform. It allows users without a background in data science to mine data and build, analyze and evaluate machine learning pipelines. Users upload datasets and combine and extract features using any touchscreen input device, such as fingers and digital pens on smartphones and interactive whiteboards.
