Maryland Software Patterns and Practices Meetup: EZ Machine Learning


Linthicum Heights, MD

Now rescheduled to February 19th... Yes, even you can create a machine learning (ML) model! Learn how in this hands-on demo with code and data we provide for you. You can watch the demo, or follow along with your own laptop, or download the code and data later and try it at home. During this session, we will write Scala code using Spark and MLIB Decision Tree and Random Forest Classifiers to create your first ML model. If you don't know Scala or these frameworks, don't worry -- the examples are easy to follow, and you'll come away better prepared to do the same thing with the language and frameworks of your choice. Take away from the session: (a) code on GitHub having sample code in Scala implementing MLIB classifiers (b) code on GitHub that runs at scale within a Databricks If you want to follow along on your laptop, you should get set up before you arrive. (We do not have wi-fi access at our meeting location.) Download the code and data from this GitHub repository: It’s a Scala Maven project, so you can compile the code before the meetup via "mvn install".
