Big Data Analytics with Java


Overview of this book

This book covers case studies such as sentiment analysis on a tweet dataset, recommendations on a movielens dataset, customer segmentation on an ecommerce dataset, and graph analysis on actual flights dataset. This book is an end-to-end guide to implement analytics on big data with Java. Java is the de facto language for major big data environments, including Hadoop. This book will teach you how to perform analytics on big data with production-friendly Java. This book basically divided into two sections. The first part is an introduction that will help the readers get acquainted with big data environments, whereas the second part will contain a hardcore discussion on all the concepts in analytics on big data. It will take you from data analysis and data visualization to the core concepts and advantages of machine learning, real-life usage of regression and classification using Naïve Bayes, a deep discussion on the concepts of clustering,and a review of simple neural networks on big data using deepLearning4j or plain Java Spark code. This book is a must-have book for Java developers who want to start learning big data analytics and want to use it in the real world.

Chapter 13. Deep Learning Using Big Data

In recent years, if there is something that has gained lot of traction and advancement in the field of computer science research it is deep learning. If you pick up any of the latest research papers, you will see that a lot of them are in fact in the field of deep learning only. Deep learning is a form of machine learning that sat idle for quite some time, until recently, when computations on multiple parallel computers became more advanced. The technology behind the self-driving car or an ATM recognizing a hand-written check is all done through deep learning in real life. So, what exactly is deep learning? We will cover the basic details of deep learning in this chapter. It is a form of machine learning that roughly mimics the working of a human brain using neural networks. Deep learning is a vast field and a growing one too, so this chapter should serve as a bare minimum for anyone trying to find a basic introduction on the topic. More advanced...
