Using Spark MLlib for NLP

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Apache Spark is most often used as a means of processing large amounts of data efficiently, but is also useful for the processing of individual predictions common to many NLP applications. The algorithms inside MLlib are useful in and of themselves, independent of the core Spark framework. IdiML is an open source tool that enables incredibly fast predictions on textual data by using various components within MLlib. It acts as a standalone tool for performing core machine learning functionality that can easily be integrated into production systems to provide low-latency continuous streaming predictions. This talk explores the functionality inside IdiML, how it uses MLlib, and why that makes such a big difference.
