BayesDB and VizGPM.js: open-source AI for visually exploring complex databases — Richard Tibbetts (MIT)

Artificially intelligent data products don’t have to be limited to answering simple natural language queries. Navigation, search, and retrieval of structured data, even by sophisticated domain experts, benefit from using AI to infer data’s latent structure. Using open source BayesDB and VizGPM.js, we demonstrate interfaces for browsing US census and software performance data.


Richard Tibbetts is a software entrepreneur, database and programming languages nerd, a Visiting Scientist at MIT Probabilistic Computing and a leader of the "BayesDB": probcomp.csail.mit.edu/bayesdb open source project. Prior to MIT Richard was founder and CTO at StreamBase, a CEP company that merged with TIBCO in 2013. Richard is also the CEO of Empirical Systems a stealth mode startup.
