An introduction to extending Spark ML for custom models: Holden Karau
At the recent Spark & Machine Learning Meetup in Brussels, Holden Karau of the Spark Technology Center delivered a lightning talk called "A very brief introduction to extending Spark ML for custom models." Holden took a look at Apache Spark ML pipelines. Inspired by sci-kit learn, they have the potential to make machine learning tasks much easier. This talk looked at how to extend Spark ML with custom model types when the built-in options don't meet your needs.
