DataRobot Adds Deep Learning and New Techniques to Extract Insights from Advanced Models

November 1, 2016

Newest Release Empowers Deployment of Enterprise-Scale Automated Machine Learning Across the Entire Organization

BOSTON — November 1 2016 — Data science pioneer DataRobot announced the latest version of their enterprise machine learning platform today. The new release integrates the powerful TensorFlow™ library for deep learning along with new tools to help users extract insights from all models on the platform. The release also updates DataRobot Prime, a premium add-on that allows users to export scoring code and operationalize models in any environment.

DataRobot has established itself as the only enterprise grade machine platform, and users have built over 125 million models on the DataRobot cloud version alone. That number will continue to grow rapidly as the new features in the DataRobot platform empower business users of all backgrounds with the latest techniques to create value with data science.

“For years, the lack of visibility into why a prediction decision is made has been a big issue for making machine learning accessible to anyone but data scientists with PhDs,” said Phillip Gurbacki, DataRobot VP of Product Management. “Now with DataRobot Reason Codes, users across a business – not just data scientists – have answers for every prediction. With every update, we’re continually raising the bar on what it means to be an enterprise machine learning platform, and delivering a decided competitive advantage for our customers.”

The latest version of the DataRobot platform offers a host of new features, including:

  • Deep Learning with TensorFlow: TensorFlow is the open source library Google develops and maintains to support deep learning as the “brain” in many of their online services. By packaging the power of TensorFlow in an easy-to-use and automated platform, DataRobot allows anyone to optimize their business with deep learning.
  • Reason Codes: This innovative new feature allows users to see the exact evidence a model relied on for any prediction. Reason codes provide insights to the users building models, and clear explanations to anyone making decisions based on the model’s predictions.
  • Feature Impact: Feature impact allows users to create simple graphs showing the primary drivers of their key business outcomes. Feature Impact is useful for everything from iterative model improvements to strategic decision-making by senior executives.
  • DataRobot Prime: A premium add-on, DataRobot Prime allows users to create Python or Java code approximating any model with a single click, so models can be deployed in almost any environment.

“Being successful in the lending business is highly contingent on our ability to deliver accurate insights as fast as possible,” said Deena Narayanaswamy, head of Data Insights, Avant. “DataRobot allows our data scientists, analysts and product teams to do timely analysis, enabling us to make smarter credit decisions. The platform’s new capabilities around model transparency and enhanced tuning will give us even more fine-grained controls to tailor our insights and predictive models to meet our business needs.”
