  • This course guides students through the process of building machine learning solutions using Spark. You will build and tune ML models with SparkML using transformers, estimators, and pipelines. This course highlights some of the key differences between SparkML and single-node libraries such as scikit-learn. Furthermore, you will reproduce your experiments and version your models using MLflow.
  • You will also integrate 3rd party libraries into Spark workloads, such as XGBoost. In addition, you will leverage Spark to scale inference of single-node models and parallelize hyperparameter tuning. This course includes hands-on labs and concludes with a collaborative capstone project. All of the notebooks are available in Python, and in Scala as well where available.
