Apache Spark MLlib Training Course

Course Code

spmllib

Duration

35 hours (usually 5 days including breaks)

Requirements

Knowledge of one of the following:

  • Java
  • Scala
  • Python
  • SparkR.

Overview

MLlib is Spark’s machine learning (ML) library. Its goal is to make practical machine learning scalable and easy. It consists of common learning algorithms and utilities, including classification, regression, clustering, collaborative filtering, dimensionality reduction, as well as lower-level optimization primitives and higher-level pipeline APIs.

It divides into two packages:

  • spark.mllib contains the original API built on top of RDDs.

  • spark.ml provides higher-level API built on top of DataFrames for constructing ML pipelines.

 

Audience

This course is directed at engineers and developers seeking to utilize a built in Machine Library for Apache Spark
