Simon Chan started Prediction.IO with a seemingly simple goal - to streamline the development of machine learning (ML) technology. PredictionIO is an open source Machine Learning Server built on top of a state-of-the-art open source stack for developers and data scientists to create predictive engines for any machine learning task. PredictionIO can be installed as a full machine learning stack, bundled with Apache Spark, MLlib, HBase, Spray and Elasticsearch, which simplifies and accelerates scalable machine learning infrastructure management. Today, Simon and his team support a community of more than 8,000 developers that power over 400 apps, with Prediction.IO extending SalesforceIQ's machine learning capabilities and enhancing intelligence across their cloud. Their success was predicated on having a unique, forward-thinking solution that addressed the difficulties of developing machine learning technology. Only with the help of an equally innovative, tech-savvy patent agency was Prediction.IO able to secure the IP portfolio it needed to become part of a cutting-edge, publicaly-traded technology company.
