In the previous article in this Machine Learning series, we looked at Linear Regression with Apache® Ignite™. Now let’s take the opportunity to try another Machine Learning algorithm. This time we’ll look at k-Nearest Neighbor (k-NN) Classification. This algorithm is useful for determining class membership, where we classify an object based upon the most common class amongst its k nearest…

The beta release of GridGain Cloud was announced today. It's the only in-memory cache-as-a-service that allows users to rapidly deploy a distributed in-memory cache and access it using ANSI-99 SQL, key-value or REST APIs. Why is this huge? Because it gives users in-memory computing performance in the cloud, which can be massively scaled out and can be deployed in minutes for caching…

In the previous article in this Machine Learning series, we looked at the Apache® Ignite™ Machine Learning Grid. Now let’s take the opportunity to drill-down further into some of the Machine Learning algorithms that are supported in Apache Ignite and try out some examples using popular datasets. If we search for suitable datasets to use, we can find many that are available. However, one dataset…
