In this meetup hosted by SAP we will have two presentations and the Q&A after each presentation.
Short introduction of SAP HANA Co-Innovation Lab given by Mike Kemelmakher.
First presentation will be about real life example of scaling particular ML algorithm (NaiveBayes classifier) using Hadoop.
This simple algorithm can pose challenges when applied to the web scale data. The problem arises from the size of training sets, fact that model size is bigger then available physical memory of single node, and amount of computations required.
It will be technical presentation and aimed to people interested in scalable Machine Learning.
Partial disclosure was kindly permitted by SimilarGroup company which powers SimilarWeb web analytics site.
