MindsDB Platform Now Features Over 70 Integrations


MindsDB has announced it now has more than 70 technology and data integrations with leading compute, storage, and multi-cloud databases. Additionally, the company has reached a milestone of over 11,000 stars on Github.

The MindsDB platform is an open source AI layer that allows users to leverage machine learning models using SQL queries for predictive analytics. This technology is known as in-database machine learning and enables the design, training, and deployment of predictive ML models based on historical data. Companies can make predictions from their database with standard SQL commands to be visualized in other applications, analytics platforms, or business intelligence tools.

“The MindsDB platform gives users of standard SQL the ability to leverage sophisticated machine learning. This empowers enterprises to accelerate the development of machine learning capabilities within their businesses while also lowering development costs through decreased complexity,” the company said in a release.

Available database and BI integrations for MindsDB include MariaDB, QuestDB, Databricks, Couchbase, Google Big Query, Tableau, PostgreSQL, Snowflake, and many others.

MindsDB is based in Berkeley, California, and was founded in 2017 by CEO Jorge Torres and COO Adam Carrigan. The platform has since gained a user base of several thousand who are leveraging its ML capabilities for use cases such as predicting heart disease and forecasting insurance premiums.

“We are very excited and gratified to be recognized as the leading and fastest growing open source machine learning platform in the world,” said Jorge Torres, co-founder and CEO of MindsDB. “The MindsDB platform is witnessing increased traction within enterprises seeking to leverage machine learning models with practical applications that deliver meaningful results for their businesses and is building on the momentum we see in our open-source community.”

Partners of the company are finding MindsDB’s ML capabilities and integrations useful: “By working with MindsDB, we are unlocking the genius in the cloud for our customers by providing seamless and easy-to-use machine learning capabilities available through our fully managed cloud database service, MariaDB SkySQL,” said Franz Aman, CMO, MariaDB Corporation. “This machine learning integration lets our customers better utilize their data to find trends and create new efficiencies – all without having to move data to other systems or applications.”

“Running MindsDB with QuestDB can significantly increase the performance of processing time-series data and reduce the time required to train and deploy your machine learning models,” said Nicolas Hourcard, CEO, QuestDB. “As our customers deploy enterprise ML applications at scale, the seamless integration with MindsDB and QuestDB will accelerate the development and deployment of their time-series based machine learning use cases.”

MindsDB has raised $7.8 million in seed funding with the latest round occuring a little over a year ago. The company is backed by Walden Catalyst Ventures, YCombinator, OpenOcean (the venture fund launched by the creators of MySQL and MariaDB), SpeedInvest, and the University of California Berkeley SkyDeck fund.
