CamGraph

with one comment

The Microsoft Research website is always worth a look when you’re bored – there’s some interesting stuff going on there, and occasionally one of the projects there turns into a real product. I saw on Mary Jo Foley’s site a mention of something called CamGraph:

I suspect she’s got the wrong end of the stick when she says it’s a natural user interface project, but that’s beside the point. According to the website it is:

a distributed, scalable infrastructure that supports inference in large-scale probabilistic graphical models.

Basically a data mining app that can scale out across multiple servers; with a bit of imagination you could see how this could turn into data mining in the cloud, but we’re clearly a long way away from that happening.
