Machine learning

Algorithms that independently learn to make predictions and decisions after training on datasets instead of being explicitly programmed.

The world runs on data, but all too often, the effort to acquire fresh data, analyze it and deploy a live analysis or model can be a challenge. We here at Algorithmia spend most of our waking hours thinking about how to help you with the latter problem, and our friends at Socrata spend their time thinking...

Today’s blog post is brought to you by one of our customers DeansList software. Thank you Matt for sharing your experience with our community.  At DeansList, one of the things that we do really well is build custom report cards that students take home (or get e–mailed) to their parents. We build...

For us here at Algorithmia, protecting the privacy and security of our user’s information is a top priority. After some time in development, we are happy to announce that starting today we will be recognizing security researchers for their efforts through a bug bounty program.. A bug bounty program...

In 1996 Larry Page and Sergey Brin published the Backrub paper, a research project about a new kind of search engine. The concept was a link analysis algorithm that measured relative importance within a set. Based on this one algorithm, the company Google was created and the PageRank index became one...

Today’s blog post is brought to you by one of our community members John Hammink Imagine – you are a novice programmer and want to harness the power of algorithms.   Or maybe you are an academic, or an expert in another area that has nothing to do with programming and want to incorporate algorithms...

A year ago, we shared with you our belief that Algorithm Development is Broken, where we laid out the problems in the world of algorithm development, and our vision of how to make things better. Since then, we’ve been working hard to create our vision of the world’s first open marketplace for algorithms...

Links in this post require access to Algorithmia.com private beta – you can obtain access by just following this link.  Inspired by @sampullara’s tweet we started thinking about how we could create an N-gram trainer and text generator directly in Algorithmia. It also happened to be almost Valentine’s...

We here at Algorithmia are firm believers that no one tool can do it all – that’s why we are working hard to put the world’s algorithmic knowledge within everyone’s reach. Needless to say, that’s a work that will be in progress for awhile, but we’re well on the way to getting many of...

As developers one of our biggest “problems” is our voracious appetite for news. From Twitter to HackerNews to the latest funding on TechCrunch, it seems, at times, we cannot avoid the gravitational pull of our favorite news feeds. I know, at least for myself, this is engrained in my routine: wake...

If you recall from our last blog post we showed you how we used some of the algorithms in Algorithmia to generate topic tags for any URL. Internally, we used the topic generation algorithm to generate tags based on the algorithm’s description and, later, use these tags as part of our recommender algorithm. With...
