Machine Learning Basics (Part-1)

The following are the list of languages we can use in Machine learning:

With most languages, there is a lot of crossover in functionality. With the languages that access the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) there's a good chance that you'll be accessing Java-based libraries. There's no such thing as one language being "better" than another. It's a case of picking the right tool for the job.

Python
The Python language has increased in usage, because it's easy to learn and easy to read. It also has some good machine learning libraries, such as scikit-learn, PyML, and pybrain. Jython was developed as a Python interpreter for the JVM, which may be worth investigating.

R
R is an open source statistical programming language. The syntax is not the easiest to learn, but I do encourage you to have a look at it. It also has a large number of machine learning packages and visualization tools. The RJava project allows Java programmers to access R functions from Java code.

Matlab
The Matlab language is used widely within academia for technical computing and algorithm creation. Like R, it also has a facility for plotting visualizations and graphs.

Scala
A new breed of languages is emerging that takes advantage of Java's runtime environment, which potentially increases performance, based on the threading architecture of the platform. Scala (which is an acronym for Scalable Language) is one of these, and it is being widely used by a number of startups.

There are machine learning libraries, such as ScalaNLP, but Scala can access Java jar files, and it can also implement the likes of Classifier4J and Mahout, which are covered in this book. It's also core to the Apache Spark project.

Clojure
Another JVM-based language, Clojure, is based on the Lisp programming language. It's designed for concurrency, which makes it a great candidate for machine learning applications on large sets of data.

Ruby
Many people know about the Ruby language by association with the Ruby On Rails web development framework, but it's also used as a standalone language. The best way to integrate machine learning frameworks is to look at JRuby, which is a JVM-based alternative that enables you to access the Java machine learning libraries.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.


What does Hadoop do...

Hadoop uses a distributed processing architecture called MapReduce in which a task is mapped to a set of servers for proce…

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) - is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction.

The basic functions of EC2... 
It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. 
Key Points for Interviews:

EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
