FAQ

Students, professors, and PhD students doing research without a grant subsidy. You’ll need a valid academic email address to apply for the license. If you don’t have a valid academic email address but still qualify, please reach out to us.

The Educational Program License lasts for a year, and you can re-apply for as long as you are still eligible.

There are three differences between RapidMiner Studio Free and the Educational Program license:

1. The Educational Program license provides unlimited rows of data and processors. RapidMiner Studio Free is limited to 10,000 rows and 1 processor.

2. The Educational Program license must be renewed every year. The RapidMiner Studio Free license never expires.

3. The Educational Program license includes RapidMiner Auto Model, Turbo Prep, and Background Processing. The RapidMiner Studio Free license does not.

RapidMiner Turbo Prep accelerates data preparation by visually blending and enriching data, enabling analytics teams to work with data faster.

Easily blend and join data from a variety of sources including relational databases, NoSQL, APIs, spreadsheets, applications, social media, and more. Then use Turbo Prep to quickly extract, join, filter, group, pivot, transform and cleanse your data.

RapidMiner Auto Model uses automated machine learning to accelerate everything data scientists and analysts do when building predictive models, without the black boxes of the past.

Auto Model speeds data prep by analyzing data to identify common quality problems, automates predictive modeling by suggesting the best machine learning techniques, and generates optimized, cross-validated predictive models.

The output is a RapidMiner Studio process, so users can instantly visualize the end-to-end data prep and modeling steps, and selectively fine tune and test models before putting them into production.

RapidMiner Model Ops offers an easy way for business users to put models into production. Users can automatically create robust scoring processes, integrate with other IT systems, manage and monitor performance on a model leaderboard, see and prevent concept drift and bias.

RapidMiner Model Ops is part of a path to fully automated data science, from data exploration to modeling to production, when combined with Turbo Prep and Auto Model.

RapidMiner Studio Enterprise supports background process execution, making it easy to run multiple processes in RapidMiner Studio simultaneously. Processes are distributed across the all available logical processors, and the current RapidMiner Studio session is not interrupted.
