An open-source platform for
time-series analysis

Shapelets is an open framework that empowers users to leverage analytical capabilities in big data environments. Seamless integration with HDFS, Lustre and Ceph, reading data directly from columnar formats, like Parquet and ORC, and the usual tabular text files such as CSV.

Machine learning to do
machine learning

Shapelets is trained to recognise distinct types of data series and, automatically, select the best algorithms for the task at hand. Our platform offers users intelligent recipes for analytical workloads like clustering, classification, forecasting, and semantic segmentation, based on the data series shape and features.

Efficient computation:
GPU - CPU & Multicore

Shapelets algorithms are the result of a thorough research process whereby each algorithm is selected based on applicability concerns and computational efficiency. Our code base runs on GPUs (using CUDA or OpenCL) and on multicores as well.
