That’s why it’s cool to see BigML, the machine learning service I’ve been writing about for the past year, decide to collaborate with open-data provider Quandl. Even if neither service reaches mass market popularity, I like seeing stakeholders from different camps work together to lay the groundwork for a data democracy.
