In this week’s real-time analytics news: The MLCommons Association announced datasets to advance innovation in machine learning research and commercial applications, and more.
Keeping pace with news and developments in the real-time analytics market can be a daunting task. We want to help by providing a summary of some of the items our staff came across each week. Here are some of the news items from this week:
The MLCommons Association announced the general availability of the People’s Speech Dataset and the Multilingual Spoken Words Corpus (MSWC). These datasets advance innovation in machine learning research and commercial applications. The People’s Speech Dataset is among the world’s largest English speech recognition datasets licensed for academic and commercial usage. The 30,000-hour supervised conversational dataset is an order of magnitude larger than what was available just a few years ago. Also available today is the Multilingual Spoken Words Corpus (MSWC), a rich audio speech dataset with more than 340,000 keywords in 50 languages with upwards of 23.4 million examples. Previous datasets relied on manual efforts to collect and validate thousands of utterances for each keyword and were commonly restricted to a single language.
Additionally, the MLCommons Association issued a call for participation in the new DataPerf benchmark suite, which measures and encourages innovation in data-centric AI.
Red Hat announced updates throughout its portfolio of application services. The modularity of the Red Hat Application Services portfolio contributes to a unified environment for application development, delivery, integration, and automation. The combination of the Quarkus platform with the connectivity capabilities of Apache Camel, the intelligent decisioning of Kogito, API management with Red Hat 3scale API Management, and the power of Red Hat OpenShift enables Java developers to fully embrace cloud-and Kubernetes-native development.
Sisense announced Sisense Notebooks, a new code-first functionality within Sisense Fusion Analytics that empowers data analysts with the tools they need to conduct advanced analysis using Structured Query Language (SQL) and Python. As part of the Sisense Fusion Platform 2012.12 release, Notebooks allows data analysts to conduct ad hoc analysis on disparate datasets within a single platform for in-depth analysis and BI that preserves data security and integrity.
Adapdix announced Adapdix EdgeOps, a software platform that combines autonomous control with distributed DataMesh technology to enable autonomous manufacturing. EdgeOps’ containerized architecture captures, stores, analyzes, and synchronizes data, delivering machine intelligence and autonomous control of advanced manufacturing environments. It improves latency, security, privacy, and cost, by bringing applications to your data as opposed to requiring you to move your data to the application.
Panzura launched Panzura Managed Migrations, a new service that manages and accelerates cloud data migration with dedicated engineering experts, start-to-finish implementation, and technical resources to quickly move data, applications, and workloads to the cloud. Panzura handles every stage of the data migration journey, providing a set of complementary and add-on services for all new and existing customers.
Tellius announced Live Insights, a new capability for users to quickly generate powerful data analysis within their cloud data warehouses. This new feature leverages the compute power of cloud data platforms for automated generation of advanced insights without requiring data to be extracted from these systems, fueling faster, better decision making.
Verizon and Google Cloud announced they are working together on 5G and edge computing. With Verizon 5G Edge with Google Distributed Cloud Edge, Verizon plans to bring Google’s compute and storage services to the edge enabling the bandwidth and low latency needed to support real-time enterprise applications.
