PredictionIO

Contributor(s): Matthew Haughn

PredictionIO is a machine learning server built on a state-of-the-art open source stack, allowing developers and data scientists to build smart applications and create predictive engines for machine learning. Created by Simon Chan, PredictionIO was acquired by Salesforce, which then donated the project to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF).

The purpose behind Prediction IO is scaling and simplifying the development of machine learning technology. The project was based on the idea of offering predictive analytics and machine learning as services. PredictionIO is ranked as the most popular Apache Spark-based machine learning product in the world on Github. The software also supports OpenNLP.

PredictionIO consists of three major components. They include:

  • PredictionIO platform - an open source machine learning stack for building engines based on machine learning algorithms.
  • Event Server - an open source machine learning analytics layer that is used for consolidating events from several platforms.
  • Template Gallery - a place to download engine templates for various kinds of machine learning applications.

PredictionIO can be installed as a full machine learning stack. In order to simplify and expedite machine learning infrastructure management, it can be packaged with Apache Spark, Spray, HBase, MLlib and Elasticsearch.

As part of the Apache Incubator, PredictionIO seeks to become a fully-fledged ASF project. Along with the ASF community’s efforts, Salesforce intends to continue to contribute to the project.
