Machine Learning Courses for Developers
Wed, Jun 1st 2016 3:07a   Niklas Heidloff
As readers of my blog will know, I want to learn more about machine learning. I’ve managed to run some samples and I’ve built my own first little samples. It feels like the next step is to understand more about the different algorithms, for example when to pick which one and how to tune the parameters to achieve the best results. To learn more, I’ve started to watch the first hours of the awesome courses below. The courses are a great introduction to machine learning and very d

Below is a quick overview of samples that demonstrate how to use the machine learning capabilities in Spark on IBM Bluemix. Flight Delay Predictions David Taieb posted the slides of his hands-on session how to predict flight delays based on historical data and whether predictions. The sample uses the machine learning algorithms Logistic Regression, Random Forrest, Decision Tree and Naive Bayes.

Integrating Tools in Bluemix DevOps via Open Toolchain
Fri, May 27th 2016 5:26a   Niklas Heidloff
At InterConnect IBM previewed a new set of DevOps functionality which is now available as experimental on Bluemix. Via Toolchains IBM tools and third party tools can be used seamlessly together for the development, deployment and management of Bluemix applications. With toolchains other common non-IBM tools can be integrated nicely in the Bluemix developer experience, for example by providing a single sign on between Bluemix and the various tools. Additionally the tools can interact between each

Running the Spark Recommendations Sample on Bluemix
Wed, May 25th 2016 5:29a   Niklas Heidloff
Apache Spark comes with a set of machine learning samples. One of those sample is a movie recommendation system which makes personalized recommendations based on a technique called Collaborative Filtering. In this article I describe on a high level how this sample works. For more details check out the tutorial from the Berkeley university. The dataset used in that tutorial contains 10 million ratings from 72,000 users on 10,000 movies. The Spark project comes with a synthetic dataset in the same

Discovering Open Data via Analytics Exchange on Bluemix
Wed, May 25th 2016 3:22a   Niklas Heidloff
As I’m trying to learn more about machine learning I spent some time to look for data that I can use. While GitHub is the place to get open source code, there doesn’t seem to be a counterpart for open data. Below are a couple of websites that help finding data. In Bluemix there is an Analytics Exchange which gives you access to free and open data in categories such as economy and business, leisure, transportation, and others. The screenshot shows a sample dataset which contains revie

Getting started with Spark Machine Learning on Bluemix
Thu, May 19th 2016 6:15a   Niklas Heidloff
I’m fascinated by the power of machine learning and I’m trying to learn more about this technology. I’ve started to look into how to use the machine learning library in Spark. The Spark documentation of the spark.ml package explains the main concepts like pipelines and transformers pretty well. There are also a number of good videos on YouTube about machine learning. I’ve used the spark.ml library as opposed to spark.mllib since it’s the recommended approach and it

Getting started with Predictive Analytics on Bluemix
Wed, May 18th 2016 4:06a   Niklas Heidloff
IBM Bluemix provides a service Predictive Analytics which developers and data scientists can use to build applications that help users to make predictions about the future for different scenarios. Below is a quick introduction of this functionality. Let’s start with a definition of Predictive Analytics from Wikipedia. Predictive analytics encompasses a variety of statistical techniques from predictive modeling, machine learning, and data mining that analyze current and historical facts to

How to build Facebook Chatbots with IBM Watson
Thu, May 12th 2016 4:23a   Niklas Heidloff
I’ve open sourced a simple sample of a chatbot for Facebook that leverages IBM Watson Dialog and IBM Watson Natural Language Classifier for conversations with users. Get the code from GitHub. The GitHub project contains a sample of a Facebook bot built on the Facebook Messenger Platform which is currently available as beta. The sample bot is pretty simple but might people give some ideas how to use cognitive Watson services and how to host the bot on Bluemix. The sample bot shows recent tw

In order to learn new technologies I often watch webinars and videos. For Bluemix there pretty good technical webinars with great speakers, mostly from the development teams. Unfortunately they are not that easy to find. So here is a quick overview.

How to invoke OpenWhisk Actions for certain IoT Device Events
Mon, May 9th 2016 3:26a   Niklas Heidloff
Serverless Computing is often useful in event-driven Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios. For example when IoT sensors exceed a certain temperature actions are invoked to fix the issue. OpenWhisk is IBM’s serverless computing offering in Bluemix. In order to implement a use case like above with the experimental OpenWhisk service, at this point you need to deploy a non-serverless application which receives MQTT events from IoT devices and invokes the appropriate OpenWhisk actions. While such
