ML on Spark workshop

November 5, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+0

The Big Data community is coming back in November with a new workshop on Machine Learning – this time with how to build a model using Spark ML logistic regression and gradient boosting. RSVP here to save your front row spot on November 5, starting at 14:00!


About the workshop

Come join us for an afternoon in which we will explore Apache Spark’s Machine Learning capabilities. We’ll be looking at using Spark to build a Credit Scoring model which estimates the probability of default for current and existing customers.


1. Intro, problem description and setup
2. Loading data
3. Exploratory data analysis
4. Feature engineering
5. Building our first model
6. Testing and validation
7. Improving the model with cross-validation and hyper-parameter tuning
8. Deployment
9. Considerations for running in production



Bring your laptop! Beyond that, the only requirement is a web browser. We will be using a managed Spark platform, called Azure Databricks, for the lab. We will provide access to Azure Databricks and everything else you need.
