What is new
- New navigation and object hierarchy
- What are Use Cases?
- Datasets versioning
- Datasets exploration
- Less constrains on data uploading
- New way of experimenting
- Where is Model Building Definition?
- Forecasting situation
We listened and worked hard to re-build TIM Studio so it is better aligned with the way how Data Scientists, and Citizen Data Scientists work. Workflow, organization of objects, navigation, UI etc. is completely new and more intuitive to make your work easier.
New navigation and object hierarchy¶
Hierarchy of objects was reworked to enable new workflow and functionality.
TIM Studio 1
- Model Building Definition
- Experiments (not stored)
TIM Studio 2
- Use Case
- Production setup (derived from Iteration)
What are Use Cases?¶
Use Cases are envelope that hold all work related to certain business objective, this objective can be described by Business value, objective or KPI fields. It contains Experiments (with their Iterations) and forecasts.
When you upload new version of data to Dataset, old version is not rewritten, it is still available in key functionality such as view of results of previous experiments, or forecasts produced with it.
TIM Studio 2 contains new set of features to empower you in exploring your data. Besides plotting, it is possible to:
- see data in tabular view,
- be alerted about missing values (see how many per each column and where they occur),
- get key stat. info.
Less constrains on data uploading¶
We added support for irregularly spaced timestamps and millisecond data.
Also, if you try to upload data with duplicate timestamps, you won't get error message, TIM Studio will import only the last timestamp in sequence.
New Studio allows you to upload bigger data than your TIM license might allow you to send to TIM Engine. In such situations you won't be allowed to back-test/forecast, nevertheless you can explore them. We decoupled those limits to reduce constrains on data exploration.
New way of experimenting¶
New TIM Studio cut switching from one screen to another to change settings and brings all necessary functionality into single screen. It stores all your work, settings, results, insights etc. for each iteration of experiment so you can get back to it later.
Where is Model Building Definition?¶
All parameters to TIM Engine are part of Experiment Iteration - available in the right hand Settings task pane.
Forecasting situation (i.e. data availability and forecasting time) is determined right from the current shape of data automatically. This is possible thanks to wider adaptation of RTInstantML in new TIM Studio, thus there is no need for Users to define these parameters upfront.
Different way to define forecasting routine¶
In new TIM Studio, you only need to define Prediction horizon, data availability is detected from the shape of your data at the time you run the experiment, in production forecasting, you have the ability to rely on pre-built model, or build new one from updated data and pre-defined settings (with RTInstantML technology).
Experiments insights now contain, besides view on model features in Model Zoo, also details about predictor importances - that is how much individual predictors contribute.
New version of TIM Engine supported¶
New Studio is built on top of the latest version of TIM Engine 4.5.X. This brings many benefits for example ability to treat different type of data, or addition of mathematical transformation (known as dictionaries).
