Inspired by our corporate mission of excellence in engineering, Kx is sponsoring a Porsche Supercup car and driver for the second year in a row. This year, the car is a new 2017 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car and the driver, again, is Paul Rees.

“Porsche is a brand that we associate with speed, power, elegance, simplicity and great engineering,” said Kx Chief Revenue Officer Pat Brazel at the recent unveiling of the car at Porsche Centre Mayfair London ahead of the 2017 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season. “These are all things that we aspire to, and values that we share in the products that we build.”

The Kx-sponsored Porsche GT3 dazzled attendees at the big reveal with its 2017 livery, a palette of brilliant Kx blue. “Analytics at Speed” indeed, the car is a beauty, as you can see in the video of the event here.

The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is the fastest international single marque GT racing Championship, contended by professional teams and drivers in technically identical 460 hp ‘Type 991’ 911 GT3 Cup race cars, according to Porsche.

“New model this year, it’s way more powerful with a 4 liter engine,” said Paul Rees the Kx GT Supercup driver. “It’s the fastest one marque race in the world and Porsche claims it is the most competitive GT series on the planet, so it is kind of like the Formula 1 of GT Racing.”

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.
