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.

Non-Obvious Application of Spark™ as a Cloud-Sync Tool

When most people think about Apache Spark™, they think about analytics and machine learning. In my upcoming talk at Spark Summit East, I'll talk about leveraging Spark in conjunction with Kafka, in a hybrid cloud environment, to apply the batch and micro-batch analytic capabilities to transactional data in place of performing traditional ETL. This application of these two open source tools is a no... Read More
