GitHub: Machine learning project for kdb+/q

Software engineer and kdb+ programmer Juan Lasheras recently added a kdb+/q machine learning project to GitHub.

The aim of Juan’s ml.q repository is to act as a multi-purpose machine learning toolkit. It provides multiple useful methods that practitioners can use for data analysis and predictive modeling. It is comparable to the scikit-learn toolkit for Python. The project currently has the following three algorithms implemented:

K nearest neighbors: The user specifies a known point in a dataset and the algorithm will find other points closest to it.

K-means clustering: This breaks down a dataset into multiple partitions. This is particularly useful as the partitions can indicate some sort of relationship between data points.

Decision Tree (ID3): This scans a dataset and constructs a series of questions that can help identify future data points.

You can see Juan’s project here.

Kx Insights: Machine learning and the value of historical data

2 Aug 2018 | , , ,

Data is being generated at a faster rate now than ever before. IDC has predicted that in 2025, there will be 163 zettabytes of data generated each year—a massive increase from the 16.1 zettabytes created in 2016. These high rates of data generation are partially an outcome of the multitude of sensors found on Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the majority of which are capable of recording data many times per second. IHS estimates that the number of IoT devices in use will increase from 15.4 billion devices in 2015 to 75.4 billion in 2025, indicating that these immense rates of data generation will continue to grow even higher in the years to come.
