Video: Declarative Machine Learning at Scale

If you missed SystemML researcher Fred Reiss‘s talk last night, you can watch the recorded version via Livestream. It was a fantastic meetup that was well attended with about 70 people in the room at the Spark Technology Center. (Another 20 were online.) For most in the room, it was their first exposure to the STC and IBMs investment into Apache Spark.

You’ll learn about the internals of SystemML, how it works with Spark and what we’re doing with the technology now that it’s been open sourced.

We were invited into this meetup from the ‘SF Big Analytics‘ group. They have over 2,300 members who follow their activities. Several Spark Committers and other community thought leaders run the group.

Formerly known as Tachyon, it’s an open-source memory-centric virtual distributed storage system (yes, all that!), offering data access at memory speed and persistence to a reliable storage. This technology accelerates analytic workloads in certain scenarios, but doesn’t offer any performance benefits in other scenarios. The purpose of this blog is to... Read More
