Video: Fast Distributed Online Classification and Clustering

// 05.05.2016 // Data Science

Thousands of software developers, full-stack engineers, consultants and systems architects flocked to Dublin, Ireland this last April for the 2016 Hadoop Summit. Hosted by Hortonworks – a major Apache Hadoop distributors – and Yahoo, the Hadoop Summit was home to 3 full days packed with Hadoop and big data innovations – straight from the elephant’s mouth. The first day featured our own Prasad Chalasani, SVP of Data Science at MediaMath, and his talk on Fast Distributed Online Classification and Clustering. He outlines how he and Ram Sriharsha at Databricks leveraged recent machine-learning research to develop a fast, practical, scalable, online, distributed, […]

Video: Monte Carlo Simulations in Ad-lift Measurement Using Spark

// 03.08.2016 // Data Science

Two weeks ago, engineers, developers and data scientists from all over the country packed into the Midtown Hilton in New York Spark Summit East 2016, the largest big data event focused on Apache Spark. MediaMath’s SVP of Data Science, Prasad Chalasani, partnered with Ram Sriharsha, a Senior Member of Technical Staff at Hortonworks to demonstrate how and why  and why they used Spark in Monte Carlo Simulations to measure ad lift, or the behavioral effect that advertisements can have on consumers. Watch Prasad’s presentation in it’s entirety below: Most traditional applications of Spark involve massive data-sets that already exist. A less-commonly encountered use-case, but […]
