Parallel R with Hadoop

  • Nov 8, 2011 · 7:00 PM

R is free, open-source, and in many ways a data scientist's dream ... but it strains under new-age Big Data problems.  One solution is to use Hadoop's scalable, parallel computing framework to drive R.  In this talk, consultant and author of the forthcoming book Parallel R, Q Ethan McCallum will walk through the what, how, and why of getting R to dance with the elephant.

We will also have a lightning talk from JunHo Cho, who will introduce his tool RHive, which integrates R with Hive. 

Per are usual schedule, there will be pizza and networking starting at 6:15, then Q will begin promptly at 7pm, and for those interested we will make our way to a local bar after the presentation.

    I have a linux host where I would like to run some tests with regard to parallelizations using R.

    How many hosts are recommended for big data? :)

    My only complaint is that it is difficult for those of us under 6'6" (hint) to see the screen over people's heads due to its position on the wall. Otherwise, another great round of presentations and discussions.
