Domino Data Lab for Data Science and Machine Learning in a Hybrid Multicloud Environment


Domino Data Lab enables you to build a complete end-to-end data science pipeline across your hybrid multicloud environment. It connects with your favorite tools and existing data, making it easier to get up and running with data science and machine learning.

Domino is a game of skill that requires laying the dominoes from one side to another in a sequence that will eventually create a line of dominoes. Each domino features a number or pattern of dots that indicate its value. Some are marked only on one side, while others are blank or identically patterned on both sides. Dominoes can be made of wood, clay, plastic, or polymer (which includes a variety of polymers such as polyester, vinyl and acrylic). Most commercial domino sets are manufactured from polymer, which is often recycled, reducing environmental impact.

Although the game has many variants, the basic goal remains the same. The first player to complete a row of dominoes wins. A row can be a single vertical or horizontal line, a circle or square, or a long diagonal line. The player must then score points by laying adjacent dominoes touching each other, with their exposed ends facing in the same direction. A domino’s value is determined by its arrangement of spots, called pips, which are usually arranged in groups of four, six or eight, and one or two blank spaces.

Traditionally, European-style dominoes have been made from natural materials such as bone, silver lip ocean pearl oyster shell (mother of pearl or MOP), ivory, and dark hardwoods including ebony; these are generally inlaid or painted with contrasting black or white pips. Other, more specialized sets have been made from stone such as marble, granite or soapstone; metals such as brass and pewter; ceramic clay; and even frosted glass.

The most common domino sets come in double-twelve or double-nine configurations. These typically contain 28 tiles each. There are also larger sets that contain 55 tiles, primarily for use in games for more than one player.

For Hevesh, the challenge is not just in creating the layouts; it’s also in ensuring that all the pieces work together. She tries to test each section before she puts it into place, then films each segment in slow motion for closer scrutiny. Unlike the rigid bricks that make up dominoes, Hevesh’s videos show each piece’s movement in precise detail, which makes it easy to spot problems when they arise.

Domino’s new leadership quickly put changes into effect that centered around the company’s core values, one of which is “Champion Our Customers.” The CEO under David Brandon, Doyle, participated in employee training programs and directly spoke with employees to learn what they wanted the company to be doing differently.

In a novel, plotting a story comes down to one simple question: What happens next? Whether the writer composes a manuscript off the cuff or follows a meticulous outline, answering that question is the key to a compelling tale.
