3Blades Launches Open-Source Data Science Platform with Tool-Agnostic Integration at Jupytercon

3Blades empowers Stanley Black & Decker and Emory University to finish data science projects faster with artificial intelligence

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 23, 2017) - 3Blades, an open source integration data science platform, today announced the launch of its initial product at Jupytercon in New York, August 22-25, 2017 at the New York Hilton Midtown. 3Blades' flexible platform is best utilized by organizations with data science teams looking for the smartest approaches to answering complex data science problems regardless of company or team size. Stanley Black & Decker and Emory University currently utilize the 3Blades data science platform now available to the public.

Hugo Contreras-Palacios, Ph.D., a Data Scientist at Stanley Black & Decker says, "In this quickly changing environment where ongoing skill development is critical, 3Blades has become an essential learning tool that allows our staff to experience big data technologies and techniques instead of just reading about them. At the end of their course, once they develop big data skills, 3Blades provides a collaborative environment where they can quickly begin applying what they have learned. The open source code base and easy to use API made it simple to integrate 3Blades safely into our internal environment. Thank you, 3Blades!"

3Blades' development environment is built to share and democratize data science projects. The platform offers robust multi-tenant environments with reliable up-time, full-featured API integration, security, and easy multi-option deployment through existing data science pipelines and on-premise IT infrastructures. It enables multiple options dependent on the users' preferred method to deploy notebooks, projects, files and more within client/server architectures. The recommendation engine removes much of the grunt work by guiding users through tasks. Valued automation features include: cleaning and normalizing data, comparing machine and deep learning algorithms, optimizing hyper-parameters and selecting the best visualizations to tell their story.

"3Blades integrates with an organization's existing data science pipelines which is critical to rapid mining data for discovery and fresh approaches to viewing the data," said Greg Werner, CEO, 3Blades. "Further, we facilitate discoveries with artificial intelligence or a smart recommendation engines to allow the data to evolve the approach. Data scientists and business analysts should expect our flows to get smarter and faster and our proprietary approach is the key excitement we see in the possibilities being limitless across industries."

3Blades CEO Greg Werner will be presenting a poster talk at Jupytercon on the evening of Wednesday, August 23 at 5pm in the Trianon Ballroom entitled, "Data science, artificial intelligence, an agent for Jupyter Notebooks."
