Free Licenses for All RapidMiner Products: Machine Learning without Coding
By Steve Farr, Communities Director, RapidMiner, Inc.
It is undeniable that subjects such as Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Artificial Intelligence are “hot.”
Barely a day goes by without some new announcement about how data science is going to change our lives – from the way we interact with our cell phones, to the way we drive our cars – if, indeed, we need to drive them at all.
This has created a huge demand for new data scientists coming out of our academic institutions and Harvard Business Review describing data science as the Sexiest Job of the 21st Century.
RapidMiner's Academic Licensing
To help with the process of creating more data scientists RapidMiner has recently expanded its Academic Licensing options to include free versions of RapidMiner Studio, Server and Radoop for all educators and students at academic institutions.
RapidMiner Studio offers over 700 data preparation functions and over 150 Machine Learning models as well as support for R and Python, all in an entirely code-free graphical environment. The idea is to get and running as fast as possible and make data science easier to apply in real-life situations.
RapidMiner Server allows you to share and re-use predictive models across groups of peers or student classes and to operationalize the results of Studio processes you have built. This allows for the rapid creation of ‘real-world’ examples where predictive analytics is surfaced to third party applications, web sites etc.
RapidMiner Radoop offers the ability to create, execute and operationalize analytics workflows on Hadoop Clusters. Again, entirely graphically. By pushing analytic instructions to Hadoop and Spark, RapidMiner offers a cost-effective and simple way method of getting students working with these exciting technologies quickly.
Getting Started with RapidMiner
There are a host of Getting Started materials available here, and support is offered through the RapidMiner Community of over 160,000 members. More information on the RapidMiner Educational Program can be found here, and you can apply for your licences here.
N.B. These licenses are not available for funded research, though these projects may receive discounted licences, upon application.
