Lucky Number 0.13.0

Apache Mahout has just released the long awaited 0.13.0 which introduces modular native solvers (e.g. GPU support!). TensorFlow has done a great job driving the conversation around bringing GPU accelerated linear algebra to the masses for implementing custom algorithms, however it has a major draw back that it prefers to manage its own cluster or […]

Deep Magic, Volume 3: Eigenfaces

This week we’re going to really show off how easy it is to “roll our own” algorithms in Apache Mahout by looking at Eigenfaces. This algorithm is really easy and fun in Mahout because Mahout comes with a first class distributed stochastic singular value decomposition Mahout SSVD. This is going to be a big job, […]
