Presentation: Moving Faster: Why we chose Cascalog for Data Processing and Machine Learning

Time: Tuesday 16:20 - 17:10 / Location: Parkside

At Intent Media we’ve tried many different machine learning technologies over the years, from straight Java map-reduce code, to Pig and Hive, to a large Vertica cluster. Over the last couple of years we’ve converged on Cascalog as our tool of choice for doing most of our data processing. In this talk we’ll walk through the history of our choices, discuss why we ultimately chose Cascalog, and then dive into some examples of Cascalog and how we're using it.
