ABSTRACT:

H2O Rains with Databricks Cloud

"Big Data science requires powerful tools to produce best possible results: Spark provides computation platform with powerful data munging API, while H2O provides a set of production ready machine learning algorithms.
The Sparkling Water project combines them together and brings H2O's advanced machine learning algorithms to the Spark ecosystem.
It allows users to use computation power of Spark with machine learning capabilities of H2O including advanced and production ready algorithms like GLM, DeepLearning, GBM, or GLRM. This talk demonstrates how to develop and deploy advanced machine learning worklflow using Databricks platform and Sparkling Water."
