Ever itched to do machine learning and data mining on streams? On huge, big data streams?
We have a solution for you!
SAMOA (Scalable Advanced Massive Online Analysis) is a platform for mining big data streams. It features a pluggable architecture that allows it to run on several distributed stream processing engines such as Storm and S4. SAMOA includes distributed algorithms for the most common machine learning tasks such as classification and clustering. For a simple analogy, you can think of SAMOA as Mahout for streaming.
SAMOA is currently in Alpha stage, and is developed in Yahoo Labs in Barcelona. It is released under an Apache Software License v2.
Person that does not know how machine learning works,
but knows what to do when machine learning does not work.
The courses were a really interesting experience, and I think I learned a lot from them.
Apart from the technical content, which is very useful, I learned things about myself.
For instance, how long I can stick and persevere, how much motivation plays an important role in what I do, how well I can manage my time and how much I can push my limits.
And now, because I am proud of myself:
I managed to finish the advanced track in both classes and ended in the top quartile of the final ranking for the AI class!
The ML class had no ranking.
