HOW: Our Products

UBIX blends its powerful set of ground-breaking technologies in order to do one thing: drive consumption of advanced insights throughout the enterprise.  We build Advanced Insight Portals powered by our patented artificial intelligence system - Auto-Curious - which runs on a highly scalable and performant cloud analytics platform. All of which allows business users critical access to simple-to-consume, yet advanced, predictive insights on demand.

UBIX Advanced Insight Portal

 

Picture a business user typing questions that would usually be asked of a data scientist in their industry domain. They might set parameters, select datasets, and voila: get deep insights on demand. Impossible? It's closer than you think. 

Imagine for a second the data science is largely automated (cutting edge rocket science). Imagine the complex data wrangling and processing is under the hood. Imagine how simply we could put advanced insights into a whole new generation of consumers and dramatically impact the enterprises we serve! This is the UBIX Advanced Insight Portal.

 

 

"...we took 3 key questions a customer had of their data, plus a semantic map we created with their help, and created an Advanced Insight Portal that could answer more than 1000 questions that could be put right in the hands of their end consumers… business users. Phenomenal." 


What does the portal provide?

As part of our initial implementation, we work with your data science and business teams to create a list of the highest value advanced insight questions that commonly bog down the data science teams. Remember that one question like “Why does this oil pump fail in the field?” has dozens or hundreds of parameters that could be attached to it that would produce in essence thousands of distinct advanced analytics questions.

"How does this pump in the Permian Basin compare to its peer group of pumps in the MidWest with similar temporal weather? 

"Is there a linkage between recent fracking activity in the field, and the number of debris incidents?

"Is abrasion a causal factor in the failure?"

What would typically require a potentially lengthy round-trip to the data science team to build out additional solutions can be put in the hands of end users with UBIX Advanced Insight portals.


The Question Graph

 

Many of our customers have invested heavily in understanding the semantics of their data (via semantic index or schema), which is certainly a valuable exercise. However, we believe that understanding what is “interesting” about your data (as revealed by a semantic graph) only serves to provide a long list of things you should do about it… overwhelming possibilities emerge that will exhaust the existing data science teams simply trying to get the next project out of the door.

UBIX Auto-Curious takes a semantic understanding of the data and creates a “Question graph” that maps to the data science tasks. which it then automates, providing near-limitless access to advanced analytic questions.

UBIX Auto-Curious

UBIX Auto Curious was inspired by the idea that if you apply machine learning to machine learning... you can well, change the world! We were inspired by our own experiences solving real world data science problems for Fortune 2000 companies across industries. It was plain to see that data science was inefficient, non-scalable, and hard to productize.

UBIX Auto-Curious performs the more mundane and obvious tasks within data science, those that are repetitive and easily learned by its meta learning layer. It is based on the principle that there are about 200 core data science tasks we must master in order to solve problems across industries, and by knowing how and when to ask for a “NUDGE”, where a data scientist or subject matter expert can provide a moment of insight - the irreplaceable flash of "HUMAN BRILLIANCE".

UBIX Auto-Curious learns from these user inputs, dramatically increasing the productivity of any investigation path, so that not only do the UBIX Advanced Insight Portals add immediate value from the first day of implementation, but UBIX is consistently learning and growing in capability.

 

Auto Curious can:

  • be trained to perform specific data science workflows in a repeatable and scalable fashion
  • perform not just one investigation path, but thousands of investigation paths in parallel
  • learns from interactions and nudges across the user community
  • apply learning across problem and industry domains, bringing disparate expertise and insights together

UBIX Cloud Analytics

The previous tenets of our technology would mean nothing without massive processing power and a whole list of dependent technologies. Without a doubt, the enterprise and software developer worlds have benefitted greatly in the last decade from a range of powerful open source technologies. But most of our customers and competitors have realized that while the breakthroughs are amazing, open source is sometimes “free like a puppy” and there is plenty of work to make the technologies seamlessly serve the user. 

 

UBIX Technology Platform

Under the hood, UBIX leverages the open source big data stack (Hadoop, Spark, Cassandra, Kafka, Elastic Search), while offering a higher level abstraction (API - DSL) that exposes the strength of each technology and enables optimal usage of the core technology by applying best patterns and practices as a result of the team’s experience and expertise accrued over multiple person/years. In particular the technology stack allows us to:

  • Deploy on-premise or in the cloud while remaining service-provider agnostic (no dependency on any cloud managed service)
  • Enable organisations to build and deploy advanced applications analytics on petabyte-scale datasets
  • Deliver real-time/streaming, interactive and batch workloads under the same "lambda" architecture
  • Create full data pipelines seamlessly  (ingestion, transformation, predictive modelling, aggregations and statistics, plus advanced visualizations).  All of this with only a few commands of UBIX Domain specific language (DSL) and associated API which serves as a powerful abstraction layer across all of the combined technologies under the hood.  
  • Adapt and integrate to emerging machine learning innovations… currently MLLib, Vowpal Wabbit, Sparkling H2O, Python and R. and easily extend to new machine learning libraries as needed.
  • Provide full enterprise readiness: as well as scalability and performance, UBIX offers high availability, resilience, security, interoperability and ease of management

 

UBIX Interaction Fabric

The primary purpose of mastering massive data and automating really hard stuff is to make it easy for the enterprise to ask for and consume advanced analytics insights.  This is where the UBIX Interaction Fabric shows its power.  First off, most insights can and should be displayed in the form of a visualization, or other chart. Making advanced analytics consumable and understandable means pretty pictures! Lots of them. Out of the box UBIX ships with 42 interactive visualizations and with our SDK you can easily extend to add new niche domain plots. But the display of a plot is just the first step. In the emerging world of visual analytics users expect to interrogate and interact with the charts to get to the next advanced question. The UBIX Interaction Fabric and UBIX Auto Curious communicate constantly, enriching our visualizations with relevant paths to investigate from our Question Graph to provide a powerfully simple experience for the user.  


UBIX has a fully featured API and SDK that proves you with broad flexibility in how to create, integrate and display your applications.  This results in rapid time-to-value when producing new solutions. UBIX API/SDK provides:

  • Flexibility in building Custom Applications - provide targeted user experience for the data
    • Data Exploration applications driven by UBIX Auto-Curious
    • Data Viewing applications built on the UBIX Cloud Analytics platform
  • Visualization Plugins
    • Plug UBIX Interaction Fabric visualizations into 3rd party applications
    • Add intelligent interaction to 3rd party applications
  • New Visualizations
    • Generate composite and coordinated visualizations (combinations of plots)
    • Entirely new visualizations
  • Rapid Prototypes
    • “Click-Through” Demos using static images
    • Replace targeted portions of demo with “live” visualizations and interaction
    • Use static images as “glue” between “live” portions of an application
