Edu-Video |”Building a Production Machine Learning Infrastructure” – Josh Wills /Dir. Data Scientist

(Reposted due to popular demand) Another great video from Josh Wills. Josh is Sr. Director of Data Science at Cloudera and has a gift for making fairly complicated technology explanations very digestible to the novice and intermediary techie.

What I most love about this video is how Josh explains -very clearly – the issue of translating analytics Machine Learning on a large set of data records (many individuals) and making it work well in a “real life” production environment on a single individual (think eCommerce). Watch Video

Edu-Videos | Learn All About Apache Spark (100x Faster than Hadoop MapReduce)

Apache Spark’s popularity as part of big data analytics solutions is exploding. Spark is an open-source data analytics cluster computing framework originally developed in the AMPLab at UC Berkeley. Spark fits into the Hadoop open-source community, building on top of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). However, Spark promises performance up to 100 times faster than Hadoop MapReduce for certain applications…and that’s why you should care!

Spark’s in-memory cluster computing is very well suited to machine learning algorithms. These Videos will give you a nice introduction to Spark, how it’s being used in business and why you should care…Watch Spark Videos…

Big Data Projects: How to Choose NoSQL Databases

Mr Casselberry writes, “When you hear people referring to big data, they’re actually referring to is the use of NoSQL database implementations to store and process large amounts of information.

Don’t be discouraged! In the following sections we’ll get into what those NoSQL databases are and how to identify which is best, if any, for your project[s]” Read More
