Summary and Info
Create scalable machine learning applications to power a modern data-driven business using Spark About This BookA practical tutorial with real-world use cases allowing you to develop your own machine learning systems with SparkCombine various techniques and models into an intelligent machine learning systemUse Spark's powerful tools to load, analyze, clean, and transform your dataWho This Book Is ForIf you are a Scala, Java, or Python developer with an interest in machine learning and data analysis and are eager to learn how to apply common machine learning techniques at scale using the Spark framework, this is the book for you. While it may be useful to have a basic understanding of Spark, no previous experience is required. In Detail Apache Spark is a framework for distributed computing that is designed from the ground up to be optimized for low latency tasks and in-memory data storage. It is one of the few frameworks for parallel computing that combines speed, scalability, in-memory processing, and fault tolerance with ease of programming and a flexible, expressive, and powerful API design.This book guides you through the basics of Spark's API used to load and process data and prepare the data to use as input to the various machine learning models. There are detailed examples and real-world use cases for you to explore common machine learning models including recommender systems, classification, regression, clustering, and dimensionality reduction. You will cover advanced topics such as working with large-scale text data, and methods for online machine learning and model evaluation using Spark Streaming.
