Summary

In this chapter, initially we laid a foundation of the core and basic concepts around big data. We then learned about many different technologies related to big data. We learned about the "grand daddy" of them all when it comes to big data technologies – Hadoop. We also learned about perhaps the currently most popular big data tool in the market today, which is Spark.

Finally, we learned about another technology that is commonly used in big data implementations, and that is NoSQL databases. NoSQL database engines power many of the biggest workloads in Fortune 500 companies as well as serving millions of pages in the most common websites that exist today.

For all the amazing and exciting applications that exist for machine learning today, it is our firm belief that we are only scratching the surface of what is possible. It is our sincere hope that you feel you have a better grasp of the concepts involved in doing machine learning, but more importantly...
