In this interactive meetup, Dr. Ravishankar Rao Vallabhajosyula, Senior Data Scientist at Impetus Technologies will be introducing and summarizing the vast field of Anomaly Detection and its applications in various industry problems. The session will also offer a structured approach to choose the right techniques based on specific use-case and data characteristics.
This will be followed by a demonstration of some real-world anomaly detection use-cases (e.g. network traffic data and financial transaction processing) as implemented on an Apache Spark based analytics platform.
Attendees will be able to learn :
1. Why use Apache Spark for anomaly detection use-cases.
2. A structured approach to choose the right techniques based on specific use-case and data characteristics.
3. Real-world use-cases such as in network traffic data and financial transactions as implemented on an Apache Spark based analytics platform.
