Title: Veritable: A Predictive Database Engine

Speaker: Beau Cronin (Salesforce) and Fritz Obermeyer (Salesforce)

Abstract: Scaled machine learning solutions often address problems of volume and velocity, but require weeks of effort to analyze each new dataset. True predictive platforms need to effortlessly handle many datasets, each with its own feature set, sparsity level, and underlying structure. We’ll describe an open-source inference engine and query layer that together constitute a Predictive Database offering a SQL-like interface for Bayesian queries. This talk will cover predictive database workflows, probabilistic models, and our recently open-sourced predictive database engine, Loom.
