Mahout Machine Learning Training

This Mahout Machine Learning Training will introduce you to the basic blocks of machine learning, and where Mahout fits in. We will majorly be looking at recommendation systems, what are their types, how to choose a similarity algorithm, and a typical design of a recommendation system. We will be exploring many examples of recommendations in the real world. We will also be running recommendations for a pretty large dataset on Hadoop over Amazon Elastic MapReduce.
We will also be looking at the basics of Clustering, a typical Clustering algorithm, with an example.
Lastly, we will look into the basics of Classification, it’s types and some examples.
