ARGis, the data analytics company founded by Google cofounder Sergey Brin, is set to start work on a new band that would be built around big data analytics, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.
The band would be developed by the ARGIs analytics and engineering team and be funded by the Google Ventures program, which aims to spur innovation in big data.
The ARGi is designed to support researchers around the world who want to tackle big data issues in their research and data science projects.
This new band, which is expected to be completed by late 2018, will allow researchers to access their data from anywhere.
“ARGis is committed to the goal of accelerating the development of new tools, services and solutions that enable scientists to understand their data and advance their science,” ARGís founder and CEO, Jeff Davis, wrote in a statement to The WSJ.
“With this new funding, we can accelerate the development and production of this band to meet the needs of our scientists.”
The ARGs band is designed for big data researchers to harness data analytics for their research.
“This is a great way to support the ARGs research in all its forms and to create new kinds of data analytics tools for data science and data analysis,” ARGs CEO Brian Linder said in a blog post.
“We are thrilled to partner with Google Ventures to make this happen.”
The band will allow scientists to access and analyze their data using Google Analytics, a tool that helps data scientists analyze data to improve their work and improve the accuracy of their research, The Journal said.
“Google is a fantastic company for big-data,” Davis told The Journal.
“It’s the world leader in data science, and the ARGI will help them do that, and make it accessible to more scientists around the globe.”
