Building a Machine Learning Lab that Scales in Your Garage

Vin Sharma (Intel)
Citizen Science
Location: D136
Average rating: *....
(1.25, 4 ratings)

This presentation provides tools and techniques for doing “data-intensive” science in your own home – much as the gentlemen scientists of the early modern era – using open source software and repurposed commodity hardware. Based on the author’s own experience as a non-specialist practitioner, the presentation gives new data scientists a quick overview of Linux, Hadoop, Mahout, and related software and guidelines for setting up a test and dev environment for tackling meaningful problems in machine learning.

@William, @Casper: we’ve just discovered that the speaker had a family emergency.

Exactly, and then they won’t let you in the only other interesting session because “it’s full”.

Seriously, who is late to their own presentation without notifying conference staff?
