Spark MLlib

Apache Spark MLlib is a machine learning library which runs on top of Spark core. It supports distributed computing and it can scale vertically and horizontally. It offers APIs for Java, Scala, Python, R and SQL.

It provides tools such as:

  • ML Algorithms: common learning algorithms such as classification, regression, clustering, and collaborative filtering
  • Featurization: feature extraction and selection, transformation, dimensionality reduction
  • Pipelines: tools for constructing, evaluating, and tuning ML pipelines
  • Persistence: saving and loading of algorithms, models and pipelines
  • Utilities: linear algebra, statistics, data handling, etc.
