Getting Started with Machine Learning on Apache Spark

Join us for a basic introduction to Apache Spark with Jerome Nilmeier, Data Scientist and Apache Spark expert, to learn how to get started with Machine Learning using Scala and Apache Spark. After this training you will be able to write and run a sample Scala application using Apache Spark. Attendees will learn: Fundamentals of Scala. Why Scala is best for leveraging Apache Spark (we will also review other languages: Python, R)Fundamentals of Apache SparkCoding examples from all of the main libraries of Apache Spark (SparkSQL, MLlib, GraphX, Spark Streaming, and SparkR), with particular emphasis on the machine learning libraries, including open source projects that run on the Spark framework (SystemML, R4ML).
