    Title: Topological Mapper in Spark Presenter: Paul English Summary: Topological data analysis provides unique tools for exploratory data analysis and visualization. Originally researched for 3D object detection, one notable technique that is useful in analysis of high dimensional data is known as the mapper algorithm, and can provide unique insight into the "shape" of arbitrary data sets. We'll walk through a high level build up of the idea, as well as an implementation that leverages the distributed nature of Spark.

  • March Spark, Big Data, and Data Enginering Meetup

    Front Analytics at Industrious

    • What we'll do We will talk spark and all things data engineering. Jake and others will discuss some insights about what they have learned at Strata including trends, and amazing things happening in Spark, ML AI, Big Data and can maybe do a short presentation. Come and enjoy some good company as we discuss announcements and general big data happenings at last week's https://conferences.oreilly.com/strata/strata-ca/schedule/2018-03-05 We will also cover briefly what to expect at the upcoming Spark + AI conference in June https://databricks.com/sparkaisummit/north-america Come prepared to network with peers regardless of whether you are just getting into big data or are a seasoned expert. • What to bring Business cards, ideas to discuss, an open mind. • Important to know We are meeting in Industrious Coworking space where Front Analytics has its headquarters. USE CODE 52111 TO GET INTO THE LOBBY and then come up to the 7th floor.

  • Getting Started with Spark

    Access Salt Lake

    We will meet as to discuss the trends in big data and machine learning, how to get started, and use cases for Spark. Come for a great evening to socialize, learn a trick, network, and make a friend. Light snack provided by Front Analytics.

  • Spark MLlib

    Experticity

    Talk details: I'll be talking about how we use collaborative filtering and frequency pattern mining algorithms from Spark's MLlib to customize user experience.

  • Apache Spark - End of Summer - Presentation and Networking Event

    Broadway Media Building

    Join us for Apache Spark SLC's end of summer event. 6:00 Networking 6:30 presentation by David Lewis about a generic connector pattern that we use at Blyncsy to connect spark to outside data sources. BIO: David Lewis attended the University of Utah and graduated with a Bachelors in Mathematics and a Masters in Computing through the EAE program. After spending 4 years working on The Sims games at Electronic Arts he left the games industry to start learning Scala at Adamatic, an ad-tech company. After learning what he could he moved to Blyncsy as the backend engineer where he designed and implemented the analytics and ingestion engine supporting Blyncsy's data collection sensor network. He is currently at Blyncsy using Apache Spark and Scala to provide realtime insight into movement data. 7:00 Announcements/Planning/Networking Parking Please choose to carpool or take public transit. A limited number of parking validations will be available if needed on first come first serve. Please provide a valid on-street, city parking to be validated. More events coming soon! Want to speak? We have one presentations planned already and could benefit from another 20-30 minute demo or technical presentation. The locations are still being finalized and open to suggestions for future locations. Sponsors are also welcome.
