Just got this from my collaborator Jay Gu: DataRobot raises 21M$ in series A. A Boston startup who is trying to automate data science. According to this blog post, the invested was led by NEA, who also invested in Databricks (Spark) as well as GraphLab.
A related company is SparkBeyond, an Israeli startup who raised 4M$. They also automate data science by automatically generating features and evaluating them using multiple algorithms.
