[repost ]AMP Camp Three – Analytics and Machine Learning at Scale was held in Berkeley California and live streamed online


AMP Camp Three – Analytics and Machine Learning at Scale was held in Berkeley California and live streamed online, August 29-30, 2013. AMP Camp 3 attendees and online viewers learned to solve big data problems using components of the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack (BDAS) including Spark, Shark, Mesos, Tachyon, MLbase as well as Hadoop.

The event was held in the Chevron Auditorium in the International House at UC Berkeley (details below).

The event was also live streamed and video archived on YouTube for free (find links in the agenda below).

At the event, we published the AMP Camp 3 Hands-on Exercises, which anybody you can use to get experience analyzing real big data on a real computer cluster of 6 Amazon EC2 instances (requires an AWS account). At the actual AMP Camp 3 event, we provided attendees with pre-launched clusters.

AMP Camp 3 consisted of the following agenda. Links to talk slides and videos can be found next to talk titles.
