Big Data and Machine Learning: A Reality Check

A session at Strata 2012

  • Alexander Gray

Thursday 1st March, 2012

1:30pm to 2:10pm (PST)

Machine learning holds the key for massive waves that are already starting to fundamentally change business, from targeted advertising, to personalization, to real-time data-driven business processes. But is ML really possible on big data with state-of-the-art methods (which yield the highest predictive accuracies), or just simple ones (such as linear models)? Can ML really be done in real time today? Is MapReduce really the best technical solution to large-scale ML? Does it really make sense to send data to the cloud and do ML there? In this talk I will review the current state of machine learning technology both at the research level and the industry-readiness level, and current best solution options.
