Get expert guidance on architecting end-to-end data management solutions with Apache Hadoop. While many sources explain how to use various components in the Hadoop ecosystem, this practical book takes you through architectural considerations necessary to tie those components together into a complete tailored application, based on your particular use case. To reinforce those lessons, the book’s second section provides detailed examples of architectures used in some of the most commonly found Hadoop applications. Whether you’re designing a new Hadoop application, or planning to integrate Hadoop into your existing data infrastructure, Hadoop Application Architectures will skillfully guide you through the process. This book covers: Factors to consider when using Hadoop to store and model data Best practices for moving data in and out of the system Data processing frameworks, including MapReduce, Spark, and Hive Common Hadoop processing patterns, such as removing duplicate records and using windowing analytics Giraph, GraphX, and other tools for large graph processing on Hadoop Using workflow orchestration and scheduling tools such as Apache Oozie Near-real-time stream processing with Apache Storm, Apache Spark Streaming, and Apache Flume Architecture examples for clickstream analysis, fraud detection, and data warehousing

Leverage Scala and Machine Learning to study and construct systems that can learn from data About This Book Explore a broad variety of data processing, machine learning, and genetic algorithms through diagrams, mathematical formulation, and updated source code in Scala Take your expertise in Scala programming to the next level by creating and customizing AI applications Experiment with different techniques and evaluate their benefits and limitations using real-world applications in a tutorial style Who This Book Is For If you're a data scientist or a data analyst with a fundamental knowledge of Scala who wants to learn and implement various Machine learning techniques, this book is for you. All you need is a good understanding of the Scala programming language, a basic knowledge of statistics, a keen interest in Big Data processing, and this book! What You Will Learn Build dynamic workflows for scientific computing Leverage open source libraries to extract patterns from time series Write your own classification, clustering, or evolutionary algorithm Perform relative performance tuning and evaluation of Spark Master probabilistic models for sequential data Experiment with advanced techniques such as regularization and kernelization Dive into neural networks and some deep learning architecture Apply some basic multiarm-bandit algorithms Solve big data problems with Scala parallel collections, Akka actors, and Apache Spark clusters Apply key learning strategies to a technical analysis of financial markets In Detail The discovery of information through data clustering and classification is becoming a key differentiator for competitive organizations. Machine learning applications are everywhere, from self-driving cars, engineering design, logistics, manufacturing, and trading strategies, to detection of genetic anomalies. The book is your one stop guide that introduces you to the functional capabilities of the Scala programming language that are critical to the creation of machine learning algorithms such as dependency injection and implicits. You start by learning data preprocessing and filtering techniques. Following this, you'll move on to unsupervised learning techniques such as clustering and dimension reduction, followed by probabilistic graphical models such as Naive Bayes, hidden Markov models and Monte Carlo inference. Further, it covers the discriminative algorithms such as linear, logistic regression with regularization, kernelization, support vector machines, neural networks, and deep learning. You'll move on to evolutionary computing, multibandit algorithms, and reinforcement learning. Finally, the book includes a comprehensive overview of parallel computing in Scala and Akka followed by a description of Apache Spark and its ML library. With updated codes based on the latest version of Scala and comprehensive examples, this book will ensure that you have more than just a solid fundamental knowledge in machine learning with Scala. Style and approach This book is designed as a tutorial with hands-on exercises using technical analysis of financial markets and corporate data. The approach of each chapter is such that it allows you to understand key concepts easily.

The definitive Coptic dictionary Crum's work is the result of more than thirty years of research and collaboration with numerous scholars. Originally published in 1939, it immediately became, and has remained, the definitive dictionary of the Coptic language. Each word is given with variant word-forms, its context in English summary, the original or equivalent words in Greek, and illustration of its use. Indexes of English, Greek, and Arabic words are also provided. The new Foreword by James M. Robinson provides the reader with an up-to-date summary of the current state of Coptic studies.
