Cloud, R

David Smith covers a recent Microsoft Data Science team talk at Strata:

The tutorial covers many different techniques for training predictive models at scale, and deploying the trained models as predictive engines within production environments. Among the technologies you’ll use are Microsoft R Server running on Spark, the SparkR package, the sparklyr package and H20 (via the rsparkling package). It also touches on some non-Spark methods, like the bigmemory and ff packages for R (and various other packages that make use of them), and using the foreach package for coarse-grained parallel computations. You’ll also learn how to create prediction engines from these trained models using the mrsdeploy package.

Check out the post as well as the tutorial David links.
