Statistics Functionality in Apache Spark 1.1

One of our philosophies in Apache Spark is to provide rich and friendly built-in libraries so that users can easily assemble data pipelines.

To address this need, we have started to add scalable implementations of common statistical functions to facilitate various components of a data pipeline.
