Using a predictive analytics model to foresee flight delays

This paper describes how data scientists and developers can build an application to predict flight delays using a Get-Build-Analyze methodology and IBM® Analytics for Apache Spark , a managed Apache Spark service, with interactive Jupyter Notebooks. The application uses machine learning (Spark MLlib), fueled by publicly available airplane flight data and enriched with weather data, to predict flight delays due to weather conditions. In the event that a delay is likely, the app can also help determine the degree to which the flight will be delayed.

The purpose of this paper is to fill the void by looking into implementation of the automated data collection processes.

CDAIT Digital Transformation

whitePaper | November 26, 2019

There has been much said about the Internet of Things (IoT) and what it can bring to business and society - creating a more deeply connected world, informed by data sourced from connected things, made better by smarter, more meaningful actions and interactions. These views often focus on how IoT technical solutions can deliver this new future, emphasizing the technology DNA of IoT devices, networks and applications. We have found, however, both through research and experience, that while technology is, in fact, the core of IoT’s DNA; it is just a piece of the puzzle needed to deliver on IoT’s promise. With 60% of IoT projects still struggling to move out of proof-of-concept and scale successfully2 there is more to IoT success than technology alone.
