New Paper: Learning Regression Ensembles with Genetic Programming

Kalyan Veeramachaneni, Owen Derby, Dylan Sherry, and Una-May O'Reilly examine the challenge of producing ensembles of regression models for large datasets.
davidgibson's insight:

If you can understand the intro, you might want to spend the $15 to get the paper (or contact one of the authors! please ACM, get with it...)

The big data ecosystem at LinkedIn

The big data ecosystem at LinkedIn | Assessment of Deeper Learning | Scoop.it

The use of large-scale data mining and machine learning has proliferated through the adoption of technologies such as Hadoop, with its simple programming semantics and rich and active ecosystem. This paper presents LinkedIn's Hadoop-based analytics stack, which allows data scientists and machine learning researchers to extract insights and build product features from massive amounts of data. In particular, we present our solutions to the ``last mile'' issues in providing a rich developer ecosystem. This includes easy ingress from and egress to online systems, and managing workflows as production processes. A key characteristic of our solution is that these distributed system concerns are completely abstracted away from researchers. For example, deploying data back into the online system is simply a 1-line Pig command that a data scientist can add to the end of their script. We also present case studies on how this ecosystem is used to solve problems ranging from recommendations to news feed updates to email digesting to descriptive analytical dashboards for our members.

Prediction: Machine Learning and Statistics

Prediction: Machine Learning and Statistics | Assessment of Deeper Learning | Scoop.it
Prediction is at the heart of almost every scientific discipline, and the study of generalization (that is, prediction) from data is the central topic of machine learning and statistics, and more generally, data mining.

Start with a big bunch of random branching decisions and then keep pruning (let evolutionary algortihms do the job of fitting) until you reach servicable predictions - that is the RF in action. This article briefly tells how this works.
