Vowpal Wabbit (VW) is one of the hidden gems of machine learning. It is super-fast (can learn 4 million features per second per node), scalable and extremely flexible.
In this workshop we will get hands on with VW and build terafeature models. You will learn how to buildInternet-scale machine learning models from data sets that are both tall (millions/billions of examples) and wide (many thousands of features).
We will cover everything you need to know to put ML models into a production application including:
