R is a widely used statistical programming language but its interactive use is typically limited to a single machine. To enable large scale data analysis from R, SparkR was announced earlier this year in a blog post. SparkR is an open source R package developed at U.C. Berkeley AMPLab that allows data scientists to analyze large data sets and interactively run jobs on them from the R shell.
In the video below, Evan Chan (Software Engineer at Ooyala), describes his experience using the Spark and Shark frameworks for running real-time queries on top of Cassandra data.
Project Adam is a new deep-learning system modeled after the human brain that has greater image classification accuracy and is 50 times faster than other systems in the industry. Project Adam is an initiative by Microsoft researchers and engineers that aims to demonstrate that large-scale, commodity distributed systems can train huge deep neural networks effectively.
The O’Reilly Strata + Hadoop World Conference is one of a few conferences that seriously can deliver on the mission of providing a state-of-the-art perspective on the big data industry. Here is a selection of video presentations made by industry luminaries that can guide enterprise thought leaders.
