Empirical



I worked with Richard Tibbetts as an advisor to Empirical Systems, designing their statistical analysis software. Like Tamr where I serve as Head of Design, Empirical is also born out of research at MIT's CSAIL.

Empirical allows you to visually explore relationships between columns in data, using powerful inferences based on Bayesian queries.




“Tableau Software has announced the acquisition of Empirical Systems, a company spun out of MIT in 2016. The company had originated in the MIT Probabilistic Computing Project, where they seek to build “a new generation of probabilistic computing systems that integrate probability and randomness into the basic building blocks of software and hardware.””— https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidteich/2018/06/19/tableau-acquires-mit-spinoff-empirical-systems/#b14c6c62c01b
