What do you like best?

This is a great platform where one can easily find any algorithm related to Machine Learning. Yes, even they provide a lot of data sets which really helps for learning and understanding the BigML API. The documentation is too good and up to the mark. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is not a free service, where as one can easily find many open source libraries such as scikit-learn that meets the purpose and even its free. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are a number of free datasets available, which are displayed on the dashboard itself when you sign in. I suggest you to play with those datasets, it will provide a brief information how BigML API works . Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

Their customer support is great, every time I face a issue it get resolved within a day or two. Apart from that their service is also great, I really loved this concept where they provide every Machine Learning Algorithm just using a API, which can be used in any programming language. I think is really great thing. Also their website has good UI/UX. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I every time need a internet connection to test my application or even after I make a full working product. They provide no offline support like the famous machine learning library scikit-learn which is open source too. BigML is a paid service where as we can find many services in this market which are free of cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They provide some data sets for free to explore, use them for learning and understanding purpose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The best thing about BigML is you don't need any files on your local system, just an internet connection and API will let you do anything you want, from model deployment to prediction. You can save the model on cloud and use it from any device you want. Also, one more thing I would like to mention is the free datasets they provide for playing around with your models, there is a wide range of datasets that one can use directly with API. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What do you like best?

I really like that it provides service as a REST API. It is so fast and efficient that I always rely on it for all of the products I develop. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In free trail it limits the storage which forces one to buy a paid pack. I would really love to recommend it if it would have been providing more perks in free pack. It constraints itself to professional purpose and cannot be used for learning purpose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use the sample datasets they provide on the website for practice purpose, they really help one to understand how the algorithms work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it almost everywhere where there is use of Machine Learning. For all the Machine Learning involving products we develop at Soni Tech we always use BigML. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It has almost all machine learning algorithms implemented, which on can use on the fly without any hesitation with the easily accessible API. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is a totally a cloud platform, where one need to depend on the internet connection. No internet, no BigML. It would have been better if there would be some kind of offline support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is easy to use, but still I recommend you to start learning from scikit-learn: http://scikit-learn.org/ as it is very well documented and has offline support too, and go for BigML then after. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The documentation don't really meet the needs. There is a lot more BigML can do which should be well explained in documentation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While using it for first time use the provided datasets to well understand the process how it works so you can well format your own datasets later. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are working on Machine Learning so with the help of BigML we have built many machine learning models which used for different purposes from classification to clustering. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The whole framework is API based so you cannot play with the data when you are offline. It is a major issue I am facing all the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a learner first try scikit-learn or some other better library, as BigML doesn't provide offline support and more of a professional kind. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Maintaining and managing Machine Learning models.

What do you like best?

We're still implementing but so far so good, we like the amount of predictive modules we can set up which will help us layer data for mapping and outreach into the communities we work in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far nothing other than making her we don't have an operator error during our set up to ensure we get the right predictive output. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We hope to use bigML in our research project that is currently focused in an urban area of over 1 million people. Part of what we hope to use bigML to do is predict technological (internet) usage based on survey data we collect over 5-9 months. The outcomes we hope will allow us to develop recommendations (policy and planning) to local governments, public institutions, and citizens. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

- Simple set up to get data loaded

- Easy to set target variables

- Easy to ignore variables Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- Automatically creates date variables unnecessarily

- Takes a bit of time to understand how to configure the various models

- Processing concurrent threads is limited based on your tiers Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are many tools that have similar value propositions. This is a tool not meant for everyone, but most likely a business user who has a solid understanding of technical data science. If you do not have a background in data science, first take a crash course or considering purchasing a book to give more context on how to leverage data science methodologies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Generally, we try to solve for objectives of both good and bad results (customer acquisition versus churn). By leveraging some machine learning out of the box, we can still get the majority of our insights without having to hire external consultants or a full time resource.
