Thumbtack's expertise in distributed computing lends itself very well to emerging "BigData" analytics technologies. With experience using distributed storage technologies and the Hadoop stack, we can help automate and extend complex data processing projects that are difficult to staff locally. We also can assist in capturing large volumes of data and mining it.
Statistical Analysis and Machine Learning
Through our close relationship with Omsk State Technical University, we have access to a broad selection of mathematicians and statisticians to help find meaning in large data sets. Capabilities range from solving optimization problems to discovering deeply buried patterns, leveraging techniques such as:
- Bayesian methods
- Rules-based engines
- Apriori algorithms
- Collaborative filtering
