In this webcast, Joseph Bradley from Databricks will be speaking about Apache Spark™’s distributed Machine Learning Library - MLlib.

We will start off with a quick primer on machine learning, Spark MLlib, and a quick overview of some Spark machine learning use cases. We will continue with multiple Spark MLlib quick start demos. Afterwards, the talk will transition toward the integration of common data science tools like Python pandas, scikit-learn, and R with MLlib
