Machine Learning with Mahout Certification Training

The Machine Learning with Mahout Certification Training program introduces delegates to the concepts of big data, algorithms, machine learning, Apache Mahout, collaborative filtering and many more advanced topics. The demand of Apache Mahout Specialists is very high as they help their organisations to make intelligent business decisions with their data sets. The robustness and scalability features of Apache Mahout are useful in creating machine learning algorithms. The course teaches how machine learning helps in rapid processing, predictions and analysis. The delegates will also learn how Apache Mahout is used for building and customising machine-learning algorithms. The three basic approaches to machine learning carried out by Mahout are Clusters, Collaborative filters and Categories.   

Machine learning can be used in different fields; the entertainment industry, the stock market and even in detecting frauds. Machine learning algorithm is being used globally by the large companies like Amazon and Yahoo in apps. The two main approaches to machine learning are Supervised and Unsupervised learning which are given support by Mahout. The Machine Learning with Mahout Certification Training is conducted by industry expert instructors. After the completion of the Machine Learning with Mahout Certification course, the delegates will be able to implement Mahout at their workplace confidently and efficiently. The course enables the delegates to find solutions to all data-related problems and manage the huge amount of data easily as Mahout processes vast amounts of data at a rapid rate. The delegates will gain an understanding of various machine learning methods like clustering, collaborative filtering, classification and categorisation. The Machine Learning with Mahout Certification training program can empower everyone from developers to engineers.


The delegates must have basic knowledge of Java programming. An understanding of Hadoop terms and concepts would be beneficial.
