In 2018 the most-read blogs on kx.com were about kdb+ and Python, machine learning, cloud and kdb+ performance benchmarks. The expansion of the use of kdb+ and Kx technologies in new industries like space research, transportation tech and precision manufacturing was also chronicled in 2018 blogs.
Detection of Exoplanets at NASA FDL with kdb+
13 Dec 2018
Kx data scientist Espe Aguilera explains a NASA FDL mission to improve the accuracy of finding new exoplanets using machine learning models. The data for the project will come from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), which was launched in April 2018, with the objective of discovering new exoplanets in orbit around the brightest stars in the solar neighborhood.
The Exploration of Space Weather at NASA FDL with kdb+
4 Dec 2018
Our society is dependent on GNSS services for navigation in everyday life, so it is critically important to know when signal disruptions might occur. Physical models have struggled to predict astronomic scintillation events. One method for making predictions is to use machine learning (ML) techniques. This article describes how kdb+ and embedPy were used in the ML application.
Machine learning: Using embedPy to apply LASSO regression
23 Oct 2018
By Samantha Gallagher The use of kdb+ for machine learning in financial technology and other industries is expanding following the release by Kx of the powerful embedPy interface, which allows the kdb+ interpreter to manipulate Python objects, call Python functions, and load Python libraries. Now Python and kdb+ developers can fuse both technologies together,
