Wolfram Data Science Platform: Data Science in the Cloud
Author

Dillon Tracy
Conference

Wolfram Technology Conference 2014
Conference location

Champaign, Illinois, USA
Description

Data science in the cloud offers advantages over desktop-based analysis, including improved access to computing resources, shared data, specialized tools, and published results. The Wolfram Data Science Platform is a cloud-based data science application designed to capitalize on these advantages, making the Wolfram technology stack including elements of Mathematica and Wolfram|Alpha available in a normal web browser. Basic data manipulation happens in the Wolfram Language, whose syntax is designed around the pattern matching operations common in data analysis, and results are collected and published in the Computable Document Format, viewable again in a normal web browser. Customized documents may be generated and distributed using user-defined parameters and schedules. Some data science workflows using the Wolfram Data Science Platform will be presented, covering import, preparation, analysis, and visualization of data, and the publication and distribution of results.
