Glassbeam Unveils Machine Learning and Real Time Analytics Capabilities – Virtual

SANTA CLARA, CA — (Marketwired) — 11/18/14 — Glassbeam, Inc., the machine data analytics company, today announced a new version of Glassbeam SCALAR tightly integrated with Apache Spark™, enhancing its cutting-edge Internet of Things (IoT) analytics platform with new capabilities around advanced machine learning and real-time analytics. These features strengthen Glassbeam offerings as it continues to maintain market leadership in ingesting, parsing and transforming complex machine data for some of the largest product manufacturers worldwide.

As the volume and variety of IoT-connected devices and machines grow dramatically, business users are demanding higher-velocity analytics on streaming data. Batch processing is simply too slow, creating the need for new ways to triage data as it flies in to produce actionable insights in real time.

Integrating the Apache Spark engine, Glassbeam is able to deliver a fast, in-memory distributed data processing framework for large-scale data — that is 100x faster than traditional Hadoop MapReduce architectures. To address the advanced analytics needs of its customers, Glassbeam is also adding new machine learning and predictive analytics capabilities to its core platform.

Glassbeam extends its value proposition for IoT and big data analytics

Glassbeam’s cloud-based analytics platform was designed for complex, multi-structured machine data and the new realities of business IoT. With these new capabilities, Glassbeam is now uniquely positioned as the only company to provide rich machine learning algorithms and real-time processing for complex machine data. For example, use cases will allow product manufacturers to become more proactive by preventing part failures, or predict which machines or parts are susceptible to higher failures rates in future. As a result, manufacturers will be able to prescribe solutions to problems before they happen in the field.

With a high-speed platform with distributed data and compute architecture, these levels of advanced analytics will translate into millions of dollars in cost savings through improved support and field service operations. By the same token, similar analytics will allow manufacturers to better understand customer and product behavior that will create new streams of services and up-sell revenues.

Specifically, the new version of Glassbeam SCALAR will provide:

  • Superior performance and scalability: Apache Spark is a fast in-memory distributed compute architecture. When combined with Glassbeam SCALAR, it is the best of both worlds as Glassbeam SCALAR was architected with Cassandra as a distributed data processing architecture that not only scales linearly but also horizontally across thousands of nodes.
  • Advanced analytics: With MLlib library integration from Apache Spark, Glassbeam SCALAR now has the industry’s best machine learning algorithms to perform predictive analytics on large sets of machine data in the cloud.
  • Real-time analytics: Implementing Apache Spark SQL directly on Cassandra data will allow real-time analytics on data as it is streaming in and getting parsed and transformed through the Glassbeam SCALAR platform.

Glassbeam’s patent-pending, cloud-based technology enables customers to reduce costs, increase revenues, accelerate product time to market, and improve customer satisfaction and retention. Glassbeam customers and partners include Fortune 500 companies and enterprises across a variety of markets including storage, wireless, networking and medical devices.

Supporting Quotes
“We’re seeing growing demand for real-time analytics as organizations seek to deliver richer insights to decision-makers and their partners and customers, faster. While the Internet of Things (IoT) may still be in its infancy, that too will require rapid analytics and machine learning capabilities. Since it is already tracking 1.2 billion sensor readings per day, Glassbeam has some expertise in this field, and we see its integration with the Apache Spark data processing engine as another step in the right direction.”

17 December 1900: The Guzman Prize is announced

Guzman Prize: Nikola Tesla  Getty mages
Nikola Tesla was “perfectly sure” he would be awarded the Guzman Prize

Is there life on Mars? By the dawn of the 20th century, that question had already been settled – at least for Madame Clara Goguet Guzman: of course there was. The real question was whether there was life elsewhere in the universe. And to answer that question, the Académie des Sciences in Paris announced the Guzman Prize on 17 December 1900.



Madame Guzman stumped up the 100,000 francs for the prize in memory of her son, Pierre, who rather fancied himself as an amateur astrologer. To win, all you had to do was prove you’d had a chat with aliens.

“[The winner will be] the person of whatever nation who will find the means within the next ten years of communicating with a star (planet or otherwise) and of receiving a response.”

Alas, Madame Guzman was to be disappointed. Communicating with distant worlds proved a lot harder than thought.

However, that didn’t stop Nikola Tesla from having a crack. The scientist and engineer, remembered today for the Tesla Coil (among many, many other things), said in the 1930s that he felt “perfectly sure” he would be awarded the prize:

“I am expecting to put before the Institute of France an accurate description of the data and devices and claim the Pierre Guzman Prize of 100,000 francs for means of communication with other worlds…”

Sadly, his entry seems to have got lost in the post, as the Académie denied they’d ever received it.

He might have had more luck a few decades earlier, however. Tesla reportedly claimed to have received messages from Mars using the latest advances in radio. But of course, communicating with Martians was outside of the competition brief, as it was deemed too easy (a view stranger to us than it was at the time).

So get out your telescopes – 104 years after the original deadline expired, the Guzman Prize is still up for grabs.

Free Energy Efficiency Upgrades from Consumers Energy to Help Michigan's Nonprofits Save $350,000 Annually

JACKSON, Mich., Dec. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Boys and Girls Clubs, homeless shelters, food banks and other nonprofit groups throughout Michigan will pay $350,000 less for energy next year thanks to Consumers Energy, which is providing them with energy-efficient upgrades for free.

“Michigan’s nonprofit organizations are the backbone of our communities, and we want them to put every dollar possible toward helping those in need,” said Garrick Rochow, Consumers Energy’s vice president of customer operations and quality. “We fulfill our Promise to care for the communities we serve by helping these organizations lower and manage their energy bills.”

More than 190 nonprofits are receiving free installations of energy-saving items, financial incentives or free energy assessments to help them reduce their energy usage this year. Most of that work is complete, and is making an impact on such communities as Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Flint and Saginaw.

These organizations will save about $350,000 each year thanks to these upgrades, which include free LED lights, programmable thermostats, low-flow water faucets and more.

“We are grateful that Consumers Energy provided new lights for our entire building,” said Thomas Bacik, president of the Jackson Community Food Pantry. “The lights make it much brighter for our volunteers and will save us money on our electrical bill. The lights have also made our building appear softer and a warmer place for volunteers to work in.”

Consumers Energy and its employees are involved in charities and civic organizations throughout Michigan. Many employees serve as volunteers, giving more than 115,000 hours of community service each year. Michigan nonprofit organizations received more than $8 million in contributions last year from Consumers Energy, parent company CMS Energy, employees, retirees and its foundation.

Rochow noted that businesses and households also can lower their bills through more than 200 energy efficiency rebates and incentives that Consumers Energy offers. The company has helped Michigan save more than $575 million through energy efficiency since 2009.

“We provide solutions to energy needs, whether it’s for your home, your business or the charitable organization you serve,” Rochow said. “We encourage people to learn more about our energy efficiency programs online or to contact us. This holiday season – and all year long – you can count on us to help.”

Consumers Energy, Michigan’s largest utility, is the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy (CMS), providing natural gas and electricity to 6.5 million of the state’s 10 million residents in all 68 Lower Peninsula counties.

Awakening to the Deception

Awakening to the DeceptionClick Image To Visit SiteIf there are very Ancient Records which explain a major problem with this planet AND there are practices from other very ancient sources which address how to overcome this exact same, known, problem, then it is logical that such a problem does actually exist, but that the reality of the details of that problem are now lost to general consciousness, details that perhaps have been deliberately removed, altered and replaced, and perhaps have also been lost through time.

This website shows how the darkness gains power over the planet. It also shows how people help it achieve its goals, while at the same time there are those who either ignore or are bemused by it, or are searching books and the internet to ‘expose’ what ‘they’ are doing and wondering how ‘they’ get away with it. Please also be aware that the ‘new order’ has the internet sewn up now, and it is no longer easy to get information out without paying the ‘new order’ companies, to even get your website seen. It means ‘Illuminati’ controls what information is available. We ARE going to show you how the false ‘new order’ and those behind it, exist, and gain their power, and we do ask you to please read through these pages and please help get this information known.
