Shark in Yahoo's Advertising Data Platforms

This is use case talk from the folks at Yahoo!.


In Yahoo!'s advertising and data platforms, we instrument and mine vast amounts of data to come up with insights into advertising effectiveness, and measure and improve the effectiveness of advertising reach. Over the last couple of quarters we have been prototyping Shark for some of the use cases and enhancing Shark to work effectively with our datasets.


In this talk, we first discuss some of our contributions to the Spark and Shark open source ecosystem, such as the JDBC server, column pruning and columnar compression, followed by what we are planning down the road. We then discuss some of our use cases that involve advanced algorithms and how we implement these algorithms on top of Spark and Shark to provide interactive, insightful analytics to our data scientists.

    Hi guys,

    Actually Yahoo! requested us not to live stream this meetup. They will handle the editing of the meetup video and post them in the future.

    I'm super interested in Shark and Spark and how Yahoo is using it.
