A new generation of data processing systems, including web search, Google's Knowledge Graph, IBM's Watson, and several different recommendation systems, combine rich databases with software driven by machine learning. The spectacular successes of these trained systems have been among the most notable in all of computing and have generated excitement in health care, finance, energy, and general business. The authors explore one crucial pain point in the construction of trained systems: feature engineering. Given the sheer size of modern datasets, feature developers must write code with few effective clues about how their code will interact with the data and repeatedly endure long system waits even though their code typically changes little from run to run.
