Tokyo, Japan and Boston, MA
Universal Shell Programming Laboratory Ltd. (USP Lab), a pioneer in data analytics, and Farpoint Ventures LLC, a leading provider of venture finance and international sales and marketing outsourcing services, announced today that USP Lab’s founder and president, Nobuaki Tounaka, will be presenting at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Computing Resources in Boston and Beyond (CRIBB) series on August 2, 2013 at 12PM. This seminar is open to the public. More information is available at http://goo.gl/iOc5p.
Mr. Tounaka will present methods and results of several recent big data projects conducted with Japanese universities including a large genome analysis project and a traffic optimization project involving billions of spatio-temporal datapoints. He will show a real-time demonstration of the Unicage® platform analyzing datasets of billions of records and will also provide comparative benchmarks to popular scalable platforms such as Hadoop.
“While Unicage® is used heavily by large enterprise customers, it’s low cost, ease of development and scalability make it perfect for academic institutions as well,” said Mr. Tounaka. “We look forward to presenting our results to the academic community in Boston at the MIT CRIBB seminar.”
“Farpoint recently announced our agreement with USP Lab to spearhead their entry into the US market,” said James Ryan, Managing Partner of Farpoint Ventures LLC. “We’re proud to organize this visit by Mr. Tounaka to MIT and other major institutions in the Boston area.”
