If you're a data scientist or engineer who needs to perform large-scale machine learning in Spark, you may face these challenges:
TalkingData, China's largest independent Big Data platform, has developed an open-source solution to these challenges — Fregata.
Join Andreas Pfadler, machine learning engineer at TalkingData, for this webcast as he walks through key challenges/solutions to large-scale machine learning and use cases for machine learning at TalkingData. Pfadler will introduce Fregata, a light-weight, large-scale machine learning library on Spark, which aims to tackle large-scale logistic regression and softmax regression problems involving hundreds of millions of training data records.
In this webcast, participants will:
