Ingesting Multiple Data Sources With NiFi And MiniFi

Tim Spann shows how to collect data from multiple IoT devices using MiniFi and send it to a NiFi host:

So I designed my MiniFi flow in the Apache NiFi UI (pretty soon there will be a special designer for this). You then highlight everything there and hit ‘Create Template.’ You can then export it and convert it to config.yml. Again, this process will be automated and connected with the NiFi Registry very shortly to reduce the amount of clicking.

This is an example. When you connect to it in your flow you design it in Apache NiFi UI, you will connect to this port on the Remote Processor Group. If you are manually editing one (okay never do this, but sometimes I have to), you can copy that ID from this Port Details and past it in the file.

I like this as an overview of NiFi’s capabilities and a sneak peek at where they’re going.

Hyperparameter Tuning with MLflow

Joseph Bradley shows how you can perform hyperparameter tuning of an MLlib model with MLflow: Apache Spark MLlib users often tune hyperparameters using MLlib’s built-in tools CrossValidator and TrainValidationSplit.  These use grid search to try out a user-specified set of hyperparameter values; see the Spark docs on tuning for more info. Databricks Runtime 5.3 and 5.3 ML and above support […]

TensorFrames: Spark Plus TensorFlow

Adi Polak gives us an introduction to TensorFrames: In all TensorFrames functionality, the DataFrame is sent together with the computations graph. The DataFrame represents the distributed data, meaning in every machine there is a chunk of the data that will go through the graph operations/ transformations. This will happen in every machine with the relevant […]
