Meetup #14 with Ted Dunning and Sebastian Schelter!

Dear Members,

* Time: 29.Mai (Himmelfahrt!) / 19:00

We have two exciting speakers:

* Ted Dunning (MapR)

* Sebastian Schelter (Mahout)

We will provide more info in the next weeks about the topics.

Furthermore we will enjoy a new venue with enough space and a personal atmosphere: the event space at the hub:raum (thx hub:raum!).

Please help us spread the word!

Thanks and CU

      Ted usually uploads his slides to slideshare. I don't the one he presented here is uploaded, but there's slides covering similar topics. http://www.slideshare...­

    Dear all,

    an update about the next meeting:

    The title of Ted's Talk will be:

    What makes machine learning easy to program and what makes it fast?

    The new Mahout DSL has two aims. One, to make it easy to program distributed machine learning algorithms using a math-like notation for the programs. The secondary goal is to allow such programs to be fairly performant by allowing alternative back-end computational engines. The primary back-end for Mahout is currently Spark, but there is also work going on with the h2o system. I will talk about how these back-ends help achieve these two goals, with particular attention to how speed is achieved.

    Please prepare some questions! Ted loves to test the audience and demands good questions... ;-)

    Hi BDBeerers,

    Please check this related event as it might be of your interest, also in the week of Buzzwords and hosted by Soundcloud.

    It is the first ever such event (Cascading related in Berlin):

    Re location, it should read U Bülowstraße instead of S-Bühlower Str. and U Nollendorfplatz not S-Nollendorf.
