Intro to Extending Spark ML for Custom Models: Holden Karau

At the recent sold-out Spark & Machine Learning Meetup in Brussels, Holden Karau of the Spark Technology Center delivered a lightning talk called A very brief introduction to extending Spark ML for custom models: Talk + Demo.

Holden took a look at Apache SparkML™ pipelines. Inspired by sci-kit learn, they have the potential to make machine learning tasks much easier. This talk looked at how to extend Spark ML with custom model types when the built-in options don't meet your needs.

The time it takes to run an ETL job is dependent on the total data volume so that the time and resource costs rise as an enterprise’s data volume grows. The requirement for analytics databases to be mo... Read More
