Event Details

In this talk, I’ll provide an extensive introduction to parallel and distributed machine learning. I’ll answer the questions “How actually big is the big data?”, “How much training data is enough?”, “What do we do if we don’t have enough training data?”, “What are platform choices for parallel learning?” etc. Over an example of k-means clustering, I’ll discuss pros and cons of machine learning in Pig, MPI, DryadLINQ, and CUDA. Time permitting, I’ll take a deep dive into parallel information-theoretic clustering.
