Need machine learning? HPE just launched a new service with more than 60 APIs

Haven OnDemand promises 'machine learning as a service' on Microsoft Azure

If 2015 was the year analytics tools became ubiquitous in enterprise software, 2016 is shaping up to do much the same for machine learning.

Just last week artificial-intelligence startup Nervana launched an offering that promises "deep learning on demand," and on Thursday Hewlett Packard Enterprise released a product of its own for what it calls "machine learning as a service."

Dubbed Haven OnDemand, the cloud platform offers machine-learning application programming interfaces (APIs) and services designed to enable developers and businesses to build data-rich mobile and enterprise applications.

Face-detection capabilities are included in Haven OnDemand.

Haven OnDemand entered beta back in 2014, and at the time it had just a few APIs, said Fernando Lucini, HPE’s CTO for big data. Today there are more than 60, along with services that deliver deep-learning analytics on a wide range of data, including text, audio, image, social, Web and video. Advanced text analysis, predictive functions, knowledge graph analysis, and speech and image recognition are all among the capabilities the service includes.

A section of the product devoted to data connections makes it easy to develop applications that tap data stored in various locations, such as SharePoint or Dropbox, Lucini said.

"In machine learning, one of the hardest things is to find the elements to build your model," he explained. "We have an entire section to allow you to get at corporate or personal repositories of knowledge and bring them into your analysis."

Delivered as a service on Microsoft Azure, Haven OnDemand is available as a freemium service, with commercial pricing for enterprise-class delivery. It's now used by more than 12,750 registered developers, HPE said.

Digital Transformation (DX) has been a critical topic for business over the last few years and IDC is now predicting a step change as DX reaches macroeconomic levels. By 2020 a DX economy will emerge and it will become the core of what New Zealand industries focus on. From the board level through to the C-Suite, Kiwi organisations must be prepared to think and act digital when the DX economy emerges in 2017.

Top 15 Kiwi tech storylines to follow in 2017

​The New Year brings the usual new round of humdrum technology predictions, glaringly general, unashamedly safe and perpetually predictable. But while the industry no longer sees value in “cloud is now the norm” type projections, value can be found in following developments of the year previous, analysing behaviours and patterns to formulate a plan for the 12 months ahead. Consequently, here’s the top Kiwi tech storylines to follow in 2017...
