The relatively academic field of machine learning has found wide, consumer technology use in recent years: all of those “you like this book, you might like this other book” type of things you see. For most people (or, maybe, just myself) machine learning was always a tedious, math-heavy computer science topic. In this episode of make all, I talk with returning guest Grant Ingersoll about Apache Mahout which is seeking to bring machine learning to a wider audience:
- Grant’s “Introducing Apache Mahout” over at developerWorks.
- A list of folks using Mahaout.
- The Apache Mahout page.
- Books galore! Mahout in Action, Taming Text.
- Grant’s stuff: Lucid Imagination, Grant’s Grunts blog, @gsingers.
