Nervana Systems (nervanasys.com)

At Nervana, we are developing the next generation of solutions to tackle challenges in data analysis and computation. Using deep learning as a computational paradigm, we are optimizing from algorithms to hardware to develop intelligent solutions for real-world problems. Founded by experts in machine learning, neuroscience, and computer engineering, Nervana is bringing unprecedented scale and simplicity to these brain-inspired algorithms.

our mission and vision:

Nervana believes in changing the way artificial intelligence relates to computation. Deep learning has emerged as the leading strategy for making sense of a wide variety of data but is very computationally intensive and does not scale well on conventional processors. Nervana will make scaleable deep learning accessible, enabling disruptive new applications across a wide variety of data problems and vertical categories. Today, Nervana has already built the world’s fastest deep learning implementation in software. Tomorrow, our custom hardware and scaleable cloud will be 10-100x faster with unprecedented ease of use. Our long-term vision is to be the world’s platform for machine intelligence and data science.

experienced innovators:

From academic departments of MIT, Stanford, Harvard, CMU, and Berkeley to the R&D teams at Qualcomm, NVIDIA, Cisco, and Intel, we’ve gathered talented thinkers that believe in exploring possibilities. We want to improve the way machine learning problems are tackled. We believe that data can empower people, and our team of intelligent, creative minds aspires to build new technologies that will contribute to human knowledge and enable technological progress.


SignalFx - A Modern Monitoring Platform Built on Streaming Analytics

SignalFx - A Modern Monitoring Platform Built on Streaming Analytics

Built after real world experience running apps at massive scale with 100s of 1000s of systems. SignalFx can take all your metrics and events, at frequencies up to every second and at any scale. SignalFx takes care of the infrastructure and plumbing to process, store, and run analytics against that data in real time.

The SignalFlow analytics engine lets you apply custom analytics pipeline to the data as it comes in, including functions like sums, percentiles, moving averages, and standard deviations. The output of analytics pipelines is within seconds of the raw data and can be compared against historical data and analytics side by side.

SignalFx can handle multidimensional metrics and any additional metadata you need to model, filter, group by, and aggregate metrics.

Use collectd, StatsD, DropWizard Metrics, any other open source metrics collection tools, or use SignalFx's open source client libraries to instrument your code and send metrics. SignalFx also provides an open source proxy to drop into existing metrics environments. Learn More.


Rise of the Multi-Model Database

FoundationDB Webinar: March 10th at 1pm EST

The 451 Group reports that there are more than 200+ NoSQL Database products in the market today. When considering which one, or which ones, to chose you may be faced with having to make some critical trade offs regarding Consistency, Availability and Performance. As if the task of choosing which solution wasn’t difficult enough, you’ve got to determine what is the right tool or language for the job. Is it SQL, JSON, Graph, Time Series, Key Value? Maybe it’s all of them.

But all NoSQL Databases are not created equal. The latest development in this space is the Multi Model Database. Please join FoundationDB for an interactive webinar as we discuss the Rise of the Multi Model Database and what to consider when choosing the right tool for the job.
