The SETI Project at IBM jStart

The jStart team has lead the SETI project with the focused goal of proving the efficacy of our new Apache Spark services to analyze very large and complex data sets in a collaborative team workspace. In order to push the boundaries of our analytic objectives, we have assembled a data science team of world experts in signal processing and astronomical data analysis, which includes data scientists and astronomers from Penn State University, NASA Space Science Division, the SETI Institute, IBM Almaden Research Lab, and the new IBM Johannesburg Research facility. The user experience expectations and analytic demands of this team, and the data they are working with, is highly representative of how we expect IBM customers in other industries to use our Spark services in a production setting.
