Join us in Stuttgart for an evening on Big Data and Machine Learning!

Machine learning and artificial intelligence have a wide variety of exciting applications. Come and explore these applications and collectively improve and grow with KNIME and more like-minded people. Join us for this unique meetup in the picturesque atmosphere of one of the most beautiful wine cellars in Stuttgart.

Thomas Gabriel will provide an update on KNIME software - including a glimpse at what is new in the most recent 3.5.2 release of KNIME Analytics Platform and its commercial extensions.

The next talk, "Smart Data Collaboration Hub“, by Kilian Retter of Landesbank Baden-Württemberg, presents the scalable Big Data Infrastructure of LBBW, which is fully built upon open source technologies – Cassandra, Spark, and KNIME. The talk also dives into different machine learning use cases that have been deployed on the Smart Data Collaboration Hub.

Taming and analyzing always-on data streams within an Industry 4.0 smart factory setup will play a crucial role in boosting overall equipment effectiveness. “Smart Industry 4.0” by Michael Wojtas of Leadec Industrial Services will give an overview on how Leadec addresses Predictive Maintenance in modern production environments.

The final talk on "Anomaly Detection in Time Series“, by Stefan Weingaertner of DATATRONiQ, displays the variety of anomaly detection challenges, depending on the structure and characteristic of the underlying data or sensor source – ranging from low-frequency to high-frequency signals.

    KNIME Spring Summit 2018, Berlin: Summary hs Tue, 03/20/2018 - 09:18

    From March 5 - 9, 2018 we held our 11th Annual KNIME Spring Summit in Berlin, Germany where KNIME users and enthusiasts got together for a week of courses, presentations, and workshops, as well as the chance to network.

    We welcomed over 300 people through the doors this year. Alongside the regular Summit attendees, it was wonderful to see so many new faces. A big thank you to everyone for being there!


    The Summit was opened by Michael Berthold who reflected on what has been a significant year of growth for KNIME. He introduced the 21 new KNIMErs who have been hired in the last year, as well as Tom Erickson - newest member of the KNIME Board. Michael also took the opportunity to thank the KNIME community for their contributions which helped us earn our position as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Science and Machine-Learning Platforms for the fifth year in a row. Lastly, he discussed new and growing trends in Automated ML/AI and put them into context with KNIME’s Guided Analytics vision. You can watch his opening here.

    Wednesday and Thursday were full of diverse and engaging presentations from data scientists, business analysts, and independent users across different industries - debt recovery, deterministic analytics, industrial automation, drug discovery, CRM, and more - all highlighting how they are using KNIME software. We also looked into what is new and what is cooking in the KNIME development lab. Thank you once again to our speakers for all these great presentations! You can check out their slides here. The Summit dinner on Wednesday evening was held at Spindler & Klatt, which provided a relaxed atmosphere and the chance to network with other Summit attendees. On Thursday evening, we held a more casual beer tasting event in the hotel foyer.

    On the last day of the Summit, we hosted a range of workshops on topics such as Guided Analytics, Big Data, Deep Learning, KNIME Server, Image Processing, and others. We also had some external workshops such as Random Forest and Gradient Boosted Trees, de.NBI/CIBI, and 3D-e-Chem. There was something for everyone!

    Just like last year, we extended the Summit by offering courses on the Monday and Tuesday. There were courses in KNIME Analytics Platform (for beginner and advanced users), Text Mining, and Big Data, as well IoT Analytics, and Advanced Analytics.

    We had a great time hosting everyone in Berlin and are already looking forward to the KNIME Fall Summit from November 6 - 9 in Austin, TX. Register now for early bird tickets!

    Gartner Recognizes KNIME as a Leader in Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms

    Gartner Recognizes KNIME as a Leader in Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms oyasnev Mon, 02/26/2018 - 16:00

    Zurich, February 26, 2018 – For the fifth year in a row, KNIME® , the open source platform for data driven innovation, has been placed in the leader category in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms. The placement recognizes ability to execute and completeness of vision.

    Gartner, Inc. describes leaders as having “a strong presence and significant mind share in the market. Resources skilled in their tools are readily available. Leaders demonstrate strength in depth and breadth across a full model development and implementation process. Leaders are in the strongest position to influence the market's growth and direction. This gives them the advantage of a clear understanding and strategy for the data science market, with which they can become disrupters themselves and develop thought leading and differentiating ideas.”

    “To be recognized again as a leader, while also being significantly moved forward in vision and ability to execute, is humbling,” says Michael Berthold, CEO, KNIME AG. “We have a great community of users and enthusiasts who continually contribute to KNIME, and we are grateful for that. They are helping us build this open source platform that strives to be at the forefront of innovation.”

    KNIME owes these accolades to its users from thousands of organizations (including many big players) across various industries, all enjoying the open source, free platform. “While other platforms are commercializing functionality, KNIME is continuing to cause a stir in the market by adding more functionality to the open source platform. The concept of adding the commercial KNIME Server for collaboration, automation, and deployment, without ever limiting open source usage is just brilliant,” comments Stefan Weingaertner, AI Associates. “It’s no wonder KNIME is in the leader category again this year.”

    “We’re continuing to invest heavily in the development of our software to ensure our users have everything they need to get their job done, fast. We’re also ensuring there are simple and relevant ways to enable these users to share what they do with other members of their organization,” continues Berthold. “Our commitment to open source is solid and we’ve put everything on GitHub to back that up. This honest, transparent business model works for everyone and we plan on keeping it that way.”
