Machine Learning without coding with Knime and Power BI

    Hey friends!

    Perhaps you are willing to do some Machine Learning / Advanced Analytics and you are not very good coding with any programming languages such as R or Python

    Here is a great alternative that I would like to introduce you: KNIME

    The beauty of KNIME is that it is open source, free to use and scalable. It is a simple 'drag and drop' tool that you can use to create an entire machine learning pipeline, from very simple to very complex

    It is compatible with most of the major ML / AI platforms out there such as H2O, Tensorflow / Keras, and you can also include R or Python scripts, among others

    In addition, you can export the ML output as a Power BI dataset at any workspace, that you can use to produce visualizations and analysis.

    We all know that there are many tools in the market very similar to this one, but what I like about this one is the great documentation, training (from very basic to very advanced level), scalability, it is free and open source

    Here is the snapshot of a very simple regression experiment that I did. As you can see, you can export prediction output to a Power BI dataset or send it to a CSV file (even stored in a SharePoint / OneDrive)

    and here is the dataset that it was created at Power BI service

    Thank you

    I use Knime and Power BI togheter and I confirm this is great and useful.

    it is a big advantage and allows you to do data discovery and apply ML algorithms.

    Thanks Pablo.
