What is Mahout Machine Learning Course about?

Master the skills you need to implement ML algorithms to process large enterprise data sets with our Mahout Machine Learning course. Gain a deep understanding of core Apache Mahout algorithms, supporting infrastructure including input/output tools, and integration points with other libraries.

In SpringPeople's Mahout machine learning certification course, you will gain mastery over the three core focus areas - Collaborative filtering, Clustering and Categorization in Apache Mahout and their real-life application in enterprises. 

In this machine learning Mahout course, you will learn to use standard Mahout libraries to create blazing fast, sequential classifiers capable of online learning in demanding environments such as processing a huge database of documents. You will also learn to implement recommendation mining to find items users might like based on their behavior.

With Cloud labs, gain hands-on experience deploying Mahout on AWS with Amazon EMR to process large data sets in Cloud. Master the use of sequential and parallel implementations of the classic ML algorithm designed to model real-world business processes.

What are the objectives of Mahout Machine Learning Course ?

At the end of this Mahout Machine Learning Certification course, you will be able to:

  • Appreciate the “3 Cs” of Mahout implementation and the inter-relation of Hadoop and Mahout
  • Setup Mahout on Hadoop
  • Implement Supervised and Unsupervised algorithms in Mahout
  • Implement different types of recommender systems, identify similarities and optimize them
  • Deploy complex clustering algorithms and achieve vectorization
  • Develop, train and evaluate classification systems using algorithms such as naive Bayes and random forest
  • Implement Mahout on Amazon AMR to process data from Amazon EC2 instances
