Startups working on Machine Learning as a Service (MLaaS)

  1. BigML – A great interface. Just upload your data and it shows basic information for each column such as a histogram and mean values. See the Gallery for some examples of the final models.
  2. – Just launched, but it looks to be a serious contender. It was started by a team from UC Berkeley.
  3. Precog – Taking a slightly different approach, Precog is both a platform and an online IDE for data science. The IDE supports Quirrel, hyped as R for big data.
  4. Ersatz – Ersatz is currently in private beta, but they are building a web platform for building deep neural networks.

Am I missing any startups on this list?

While not really startups, the following 2 links might also fit here.

  1. Google Prediction API – Cloud-based machine learning tools
  2. PSI Project – A research project at the Australian National University.

  1. Another startup that is not on the list is Predixion Software ( It was started by a group of people that worked on data mining at Microsoft.

    1. Although, Dxilogy is an interesting sounding startup. It does not appear to be building an “As a Service” product. Please correct me if I am wrong though.

      Thanks for the link though.
