Cloudera is delighted to announce the release of Cloudera Data Science Workbench 1.4.0. With this release, Cloudera Data Science Workbench extends the machine learning platform experience from research to production. Data scientists can now build, train, and deploy models in a unified workflow with two new key capabilities: experiments and models.
Experiments: Experiments let data scientists train, compare, and reproduce versioned models. With this feature,, data scientists can run a batch job that will:
Models: Models let data scientists build, deploy, and manage models as REST APIs to serve predictions. With this feature, data scientists can simply select a Python or R function within a project file, and Cloudera Data Science Workbench will:

With automatic synchronisation, the ability to log in or administer CDSW now depends on a user’s group membership. These groups can be assigned in your existing centralised LDAP/SAML authentication system.
We’ve added two new properties to CDSW:
