So what exactly is IBM doing different with machine learning?

In a similar way, suppose you are working on a complex model for fraud detection.

It would make sense to dramatically accelerate training on Power machines leveraging GPUs and the high speed NVLink connections (see, but then you might want to deploy the model right into a CICS in-transaction call on the mainframe for sub-millisecond scoring of a credit card transaction.

This keeps customers from working against data gravity: We let them bring the tools, intelligence, and analytics to the data rather than forcing them to drag data slowly — and insecurely — from place to place.

In a third use case, Watson Speech-to-Text and advanced NLP capabilities in Watson Explorer (WEX) integrate with DSX to combine unsupervised and supervised techniques for understanding deep intent in customer calls into the call center.

Another strength is a steady stream of innovation coming in from IBM Research, ranging from automatic feature engineering to cognitive databases to distributed deep learning for scaling acceleration and more.

Doing feature engineering and building models and infusing them into the applications and processes of a business needs an intimate knowledge of the business and its dynamics — both at the high level of the industry sector and at the low level of transaction flow, regulation, and so on.

Watson machine learning within IBM Data Science Experience

Although the name has changed and some images may show the previous name, the steps and processes in this post will still work.) Machine learning is all about building algorithms and models that can learn from data to be able to make accurate predictions.

By incorporating machine learning technology, organizations can create intelligent applications that help avoid risks, identify opportunities, and make more insightful, data-driven decisions.

But one of the challenges companies are facing is the shortage of talent – we simply don’t have enough skilled people around with experience in working with complex machine learning algorithms and models.

With this new wizard-based graphical user interface, we can build machine learning pipelines in no time without having to know complex machine learning algorithms and without writing a single line of code!

Here’s how a small portion of the dataset looks like: As you can see, each row in the dataset has five columns (we’re using a simplified version of the original dataset for this example).

Before we can use the new Watson Machine Learning GUI to build our machine learning pipeline for the dataset, we have to take care of a few prerequisites within IBM Data Science Experience (DSX): With all the prerequisites in place, we’re now ready to give the Watson Machine Learning GUI a spin.

Let’s start by creating a Watson Machine Learning pipeline: The Watson Machine Learning wizard-based GUI can now guide us through the end-to-end process of selecting and preparing the data, training and evaluating the model, and, finally, deploying the model and be able to make predictions.

We’ll use some of these built-in transformations to quickly convert our features and label into a form that can be understood by the machine learning model downstream as follows: At this point, our pipeline will look like the screenshot below with all our transformations configured.

Here are the steps to perform: The Predict page should look like the following screen: In this case, what we’re able to predict is that a single professional male of age 27 has a high probability of buying a tent.

With the new Watson Machine Learning GUI (coming soon), data scientists and developers of all skill levels will be able to quickly leverage machine learning to gain valuable insights from their data, even if they don’t want to write a single line of code!
