Please log in to watch this conference skillscast.
You will explore Nicolas and Thomas's real-life example to introduce machine learning concepts and Apache Spark. The particular focus will be on patterns of behaviour in online communities, but the talk should also be interesting to you if you happen to be relatively new to machine learning, or interested in classification problems more generally - for example, spam detection. You will also discover problems the team encountered along the way and how to avoid them yourself!
The Call for Papers is now open for Scala eXchange 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
