Kx is thrilled that the Earlham Institute in England will be using Kx technology for a bioinformatics project that will help to promote a sustainable bioeconomy.

Ji Zhou, Phenomics Project Leader at Earlham, is planning to develop and embed the latest machine-learning algorithms, including deep learning techniques, in Kx’s platform. Earlham will use Kx to create predictive models for studying crop growth patterns and agricultural tactics. Their models will incorporate factors such as environmental stress and crop response.

Stay tuned for updates on their progress, and in the meantime, here is an article about the project from Scientific Computing World:

Kx Insights: Machine learning subject matter experts in semiconductor manufacturing

9 Jul 2018 | , ,

Subject matter experts are needed for ML projects since generalist data scientists cannot be expected to be fully conversant with the context, details, and specifics of problems across all industries. The challenges are often domain-specific and require considerable industry background to fully contextualize and address. For that reason, successful projects are typically those that adopt a teamwork approach bringing together the strengths of data scientists and subject matter experts. Where data scientists bring generic analytics and coding capabilities, Subject matter experts provide specialized insights in three crucial areas: identifying the right problem, using the right data, and getting the right answers.
