Algorithmia at HackerNews Meetup Seattle

  1. 1. “In fact what I would like to see is thousands of computer scientists let loose to do whatever they want. That's what really advances the field. ” – Donald Knuth
  2. 2. Our goal with Algorithmia is to make applications smarter, by building a community around algorithm development, where state of the art algorithms are always live and accessible to anyone.
  3. 3. History of Technology • “In economics productivity is a measure of technological progress. Productivity increases when fewer inputs are used in the production of a unit of output” • We went from Hunter-gatherer to agriculture to industrial to the next revolution: interpretation of data. • Algorithms are at the center of the next revolution. They are the tools of our generation. • If data is the new oil, advanced algorithms are the drilling platforms, pipelines, tankers and gas stations.
  4. 4. The more data we collect…the harder it gets to analyze.
  5. 5. “But data is inherently dumb. It doesn’t actually do anything unless you know how to use it. And big data is even harder to monetize due to the sheer complexity of it. Data alone is not going to be the catalyst for the next wave of IT-driven innovation. The next digital gold rush will be focused on how you do something with data, not just what you do with it. This is the promise the algorithm economy.” - Peter Sondergaard (Gartner Research)
  6. 6. New algorithms created every day…
  7. 7. What is the problem? Cross industry shortage of qualified algorithm developers. New innovative algorithms created every day don’t make it into the hands of those who could benefit from them. Academic/Research papers hard to find and implement. Code usually incomplete and unsupported.
  8. 8. A solution Algorithmia is a first-of-its-kind marketplace for algorithms. Algorithmia is a platform where algorithm developers can submit their code, and anyone can benefit from their algorithms. . Easy to develop hosted powerful algorithms that scale. Get state-of-the-art algorithms into hands of people with computational problems. Create a community and market around algorithm development. Dead simple monetization path for algorithm developers.
  9. 9. • No need to worry about deploying or scaling infrastructure to run or consume algorithms. • As much computing power as needed. • Available in most public clouds across the globe (upon request).
  10. 10. REST API allows for any algorithm to be called in any language regardless of the language it was written in.
  11. 11. Advantages to you Easy plug and play solution that enables purchase of both code and infrastructure in one stop. Complex algorithms boiled down to simple REST API. Understand input/outpt and go. Entire library of algorithms to use as building blocks.
  12. 12. “Its not about the pieces , it’s how the pieces work together” - ICE CUBE

  14. 14. How machines see the web
  15. 15. Create your own machine learning powered RSS reader in < 30 minutes ScrapeRSS HTML2Text AutoTag SentimentAnalysis Summarizer
  16. 16. New set of capabilities revealed today, here exclusively… • Automatic content recommendations on any site with just 2 lines of code. • Current content recommendations are usually based on click stream analysis or manual curation:
  17. 17. Add this capability to any site…2 lines of code
  18. 18. Recommenders Did I mention building blocks? Crawlers Text Analysis Scrapers Keyword Scoring
  19. 19. How you can build it yourself… • Blog post coming out this Thursday morning. Keep an eye out for it . Like it ? Throw us an upvote. • Code samples at • Want to test it today ? (Send us feedback – get a t-shirt)
  20. 20. Join us? Looking for… • Algorithm developers • Developer Evangelists • Marketers with developer tool experience
  21. 21. Q & A
