Scalable, commercial-friendly machine learning for building intelligent applications

This course will introduce you to the basic blocks of machine learning, and where Mahout fits in. We will majorly be looking at recommendation systems, what are their types, how to choose a similarity algorithm, and a typical design of a recommendation system. We will be exploring many examples of recommendations in the real world. We will also be running recommendations for a pretty large dataset on Hadoop over Amazon Elastic MapReduce.We will also be looking at the basics of Clustering, a typical Clustering algorithm, with an example.Lastly, we will look into the basics of Classification, it's types and some examples.

The need for machine-learning techniques like clustering, collaborative filtering, and categorization has never been greater, be it for finding commonalities among large groups of people or automatically tagging large volumes of Web content.

Hardware and Softwares Required for this training:

Delegates attending this course are required to carry a laptop with below configuration. Usually we suggest a 64 bit machine and not a 32 bit machine. However you can still try with a 32 bit machine but we do not gaurantee if the programs will run without any error. 

Windows userWindows 7 – 64 bit OS, Min 4 GB RAMVMWare Player 5.0.0Linux  VM– Ubuntu 12.04 LTS : {Unicom will be providing the VM(virtual machine)}Eclipse 3.6+Putty – For opening Telnet sessions to the Linux VMWinSCP – For transferring files between Windows and Linux VM

Linux/Mac Users (preferably a 64 bit machine): Min 4 GB RAM Eclipse 3.6+JDK 1.6 or higher installed on your machineSSH installed

Systems with said configuration can be arranged through us with an additional cost.



The Apache Mahout project aims to make building intelligent applications easier and faster. Mahout co-founder Grant Ingersoll introduces the basic concepts of machine learning and then demonstrates how to use Mahout to cluster documents, make recommendations, and organize content.

Apache Mahout is an Apache project to produce free implementations of distributed or otherwise scalable machine learning algorithms focused primarily in the areas of collaborative filtering, clustering and classification, often leveraging, but not limited to, the Hadoop platform.

Three specific machine-learning tasks that Mahout currently implements.    Collaborative filtering    Clustering    Categorization

The need for machine-learning techniques like clustering, collaborative filtering, and categorization has never been greater, be it for finding commonalities among large groups of people or automatically tagging large volumes of Web content.
