IBM Invents Short-Cut to Assessing Data Quality

Feb 25, 2010 |

In what IBM is characterizing as a “breakthrough,” researchers have developed an algorithm that cuts the computational costs of assessing data quality by two orders of magnitude. The new algorithm has potentially far-reaching applicability, extending to nearly all types of analytics applications as well as scientific modeling and simulation.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside…Let’s Calculate Something
