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.

How Alluxio is Accelerating Apache Spark Workloads

Alluxio is fast virtual storage for Big Data. 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
