Apache MADlib is an open source project that endeavors to adhere in all respects to the principles of The Apache Way.
MADlib grew out of discussions between database engine developers, data scientists, IT architects and academics interested in new approaches to scalable, sophisticated in-database analytics. These discussions were written up in a paper in VLDB 2009 that coined the term “MAD Skills” for data analysis. The MADlib software project began the following year as a collaboration between researchers at UC Berkeley and engineers and data scientists at EMC/Greenplum (later Pivotal).
In September 2015 MADlib was accepted into the Apache Software Foundation Incubator and graduated to a Top Level Project in July 2017.
Some of the original participants in the development of this project were:
