Topic :

Scalable data science in Spark: Machine learning and end-to-end data analysis processes in Spark using Python and R

Abstract :

When it comes to scalable data analysis and ML, many data scientists are frequently hindered by limited availability of functions to handle large data-sets, appropriate infrastructure, and ability to produce models that can be consumed easily in production. This talk will address such issues using the Spark framework and languages that are popular amongst data scientists. We will present examples of end-to-end data analysis processes in Python and R, with an emphasis on distributed machine learning, that attendees to adopt in their own data science practice.
