Applied machine learning with Apache Spark

Machine learning is one of the fastest-growing fields of Artificial Intelligence. It has quickly become the de facto standard for making sense of the staggering amounts of data we produce in our day to day life. Machine learning is used virtually everywhere, including healthcare, finance, education, genetics and robotics, and can be found in many products of today’s high profile companies, such as Google, IBM, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon. During this talk, we’ll not only introduce you to the field of machine learning and discuss its recent developments, but also demo how to apply machine learning in a hands-on use case with the Apache Spark framework, leaving you with a toolset and basic know-how to integrate machine learning in your projects.
