Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "DataSketchesProposal" by Lee Rhodes
Date Wed, 06 Mar 2019 22:34:56 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "DataSketchesProposal" page has been changed by Lee Rhodes:
https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/DataSketchesProposal?action=diff&rev1=31&rev2=32

  
  We believe that having !DataSketches as an Apache project will provide an immediate, worthwhile,
and substantial contribution to the open source community, will have a better opportunity
to provide a meaningful contribution to both the science and engineering of sketching algorithms,
and integrate with other Apache projects.  In addition, this is a significant opportunity
for Apache to be the "go-to" destination for users that want to leverage this exciting technology.

  Because successful development and implementation of high-performance sketches involves
knowledge of advanced mathematics and statistics, there might be a tendency to associate the
Apache !DataSketches project with Apache Commons-Math or Apache Commons-Statistics.  This,
I believe, would be a mistake for a couple of reasons.
   * Language Support. The Apache Commons-Math, Apache Commons-Statistics, and Apache Commons-Lang
libraries are exclusively Java libraries by definition.  The !DataSketches library supports
multiple languages (So far: Java, C++, Python). 
   * Visibility to data processing platform developers.  Sketching is a relatively new field
in the arsenal of tools available to system developers.  Burying this project under the commons
math or commons statistics may make it harder to find. We want to encourage synergy with the
various platforms to learn to leverage this technology and to provide feedback to us on capabilities
in the design of the sketches themselves.

   * Continued engagement with the scientific research community on the development of new
algorithms for computationally difficult problems that heretofore have not had a sketching
solution.
  
  == Current Status ==
- The !DataSketches !GitHub project has been quite successful.  As of this writing (Feb, 2019)
the number of downloads measured by the Nexus Repository Manager at [[https://oss.sonatype.org|oss.sonatype.org]]
has grown by nearly a factor of 10 over the past year to about 55 thousand per month. The
!DataSketches/sketches-core repository has about 560 stars and 141 forks, which is pretty
good for a highly specialized library.
