I built a scenario for a hybrid machine learning infrastructure leveraging Apache Kafka as scalable central nervous system. The public cloud is used for training analytic models at extreme scale (e.g. using TensorFlow and TPUs on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) via Google ML Engine. The predictions (i.e.…Continue
Machine Learning / Deep Learning models can be used in different ways to do predictions. My preferred way is to deploy an analytic model directly into a stream processing application (like Kafka Streams or KSQL). You could e.g. use the …Continue

Technology is known to shift landscapes, even change the game. We saw that when the internet exploded in scale and popularity, as computers became smarter, and the world goes through the digital transformation. An easy example is in traditional marketing, which now borders on the irrelevant, unable to hold a candle to its more modern counterparts.

I had a new talk presented at "Codemotion Amsterdam 2018" this week. I discussed the relation of Apache Kafka and Machine Learning to build a Machine Learning infrastructure for extreme scale.
Long version of the title:
"Deep Learning at Extreme Scale (in the Cloud) with the Apache Kafka Open Source Ecosystem - How to Build a Machine Learning Infrastructure with Kafka, Connect, Streams, KSQL, etc."
As always, I want to share the slide deck. The talk was…Continue

Summary: There are several things holding back our use of deep learning methods and chief among them is that they are complicated and hard. Now there are three platforms that offer Automated Deep Learning (ADL) so simple that almost anyone can do it.
R shiny app is an interactive web interface. R shiny app has two components user interface object (UI.R) and server function (Server .R). The two components are passed as arguments to the shiny app function that creates a shiny app object. For more info on how to build Shiny…Continue

1.Introduction to Big data and Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is the use of computing resources (hardware and software) that are delivered as a service over a network (typically the Internet). It’s a virtualization framework.
It is like resource on demand whether it be storage, computing etc. Cloud follows pay per usage model. You need to pay the amount of resource you use.
This computing service by cloud charges…Continue

This article describes the approach undertaken by data scientists at Axibase to calculate the Cloud Cover using satellite imagery from the Japanese Himawari 8 satellite.
Today, cloud cover is measured using automated weather stations, specifically the ceilometer and the sky imager instruments. The ceilometer is an upward pointed laser that calculates the time required for the laser to reflect from the clouds, determining the height of the cloud base.…Continue

From all indications, 2015 is well on its way to becoming the year of cloud computing. The feverish pitch of activities at key players on one hand and the data as well as observations of industry pundits affirm this. There are apparently a handful of reason to keep the IT industry leaders awake at night.
For starters, per , 2014 revenues for cloud services grew by 60 percent. The global cloud computing market, per Forrester, is expected to grow to over $191 billion by 2020. IDC…Continue

For a very long time, businesses had their documents filed in folders and stored in huge metal cabinets. But thanks to advances in technology, they were eventually coded and stored digitally. As we advance through the Age of Information, the traditional digital storage devices like the floppy, compact, and flash discs evolved into cloud storage. Eric Griffith, a…Continue
