  • I know, when someone starts talking machine learning, AI, and Tanimoto coefficients you probably make popcorn and perk up, right?
  • Once we as an industry get done with the big, fat Hadoop deploy, the interest in machine learning and possibly AI more generally will explode, as one insightful commentator on my Hadoop article observed.
  • The elephant, in this case, is Hadoop — and Mahout is one of the many projects that can sit on top of Hadoop, although you do not always need MapReduce to run it.
  • Mahout is a great way to leverage a number of features from recommendation engines to pattern recognition to data mining.
