6:00 – 6:30 Mingle and food
6:30 – Artem Ervits – Announcements, etc.
6:45 – Alex Zeltov – Intro to Big Data Analytics using Microsoft Machine Learning Server with Spark
By combining enterprise-scale R analytics software with the power of Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark, Microsoft R Server for HDP or HDInsight gives you the scale and performance you need. Multi-threaded math libraries and transparent parallelization in R Server handle up to 1000x more data and up to 50x faster speeds than open-source R, which helps you to train more accurate models for better predictions. R Server works with the open-source R language, so all of your R scripts run without changes.
Microsoft Machine Learning Server is your flexible enterprise platform for analyzing data at scale, building intelligent apps, and discovering valuable insights across your business with full support for Python and R. Machine Learning Server meets the needs of all constituents of the process – from data engineers and data scientists to line-of-business programmers and IT professionals. It offers a choice of languages and features algorithmic innovation that brings the best of open source and proprietary worlds together.
R support is built on a legacy of Microsoft R Server 9.x and Revolution R Enterprise products. Significant machine learning and AI capabilities enhancements have been made in every release. In 9.2.1, Machine Learning Server adds support for the full data science lifecycle of your Python-based analytics.
This meetup will NOT be a data science intro or R intro to programming. It is about working with data and big data on MLS .
– How to Scale R
– Work with R and Hadoop + Spark
-Demo of MLS on HDP/HDInsight server with RStudio
– How to operationalize deploying models using MLS Webservice operationalization features on MLS Server or on the cloud Azure ML (PaaS) offering. Speaker Bio:
