NYC Big Data Meetup – Distributed Random Forest, GBM, GLM & API for Big Data Algos

Distributed Machine Learning has come of age. Just in time to meet the challenges of Big Data, we present an API for extending and rolling your own Algorithms or using powerful contest-winning Gradient Boosting Machine, Generalized Linear Modeling and Random Forest at scale. Demo and Fireworks using big datasets from within the familiar R interface on commodity hardware.
