Comprehensive Guide On Java Tools for AI and Machine Learning

Sanam Malhotra | 6th April 2020

Among programming languages, Java is recognized as the most rewarding language that “strives for perfection”. In light of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), Java is propelling innovative and expansive solutions for enterprises. As a well-positioned provider of artificial intelligence services, Oodles AI has employed multiple Java tools for AI including Hadoop, Apache Spark, Scikit-learn, etc. Here’s an elaboration of how Java dominates the future of AI and various Java tools for enterprises aiming to adopt AI.


Java: The Future of AI and Machine Learning for Enterprises

Enterprises, whether emerging or established, denote Java as the cornerstone of their digital architecture. Touted as the “enterprise language”, Java is the oldest and most widely used programming language that is ruling the software industry for 20 years. From big data to artificial intelligence and cloud machine learning solutions, Java exhibits great potential to run and deploy expansive business applications.

In a presentation at Oracle Code One 2018, Bernard Traversat, Head of the Java platform development, elaborated the future of Java tools for AI and machine learning by stating,

“One of the strong positions that Java has in the Big Data space is that all the open-source Big Data stacks are either written in Java or have been written for the Java Virtual Machine.”

Java tools for AI


In addition to support from big data stack, Java constitutes an enormous ecosystem of tools and libraries that empowers enterprises to-

a) Embed AI and ML technologies easily into the business models

b) Practice massive data scaling up to multi-terabyte heaps

c) Achieve significant competitive edge with exceptional language performance

d) Maintain cost-efficiency and low latency
