The healthcare industry, perhaps more than any other, is on the brink of a major transformation through the use of advanced analytics and big data technologies. In this post, we’re going to talk about 5 big data trends in healthcare for 2017.
In this blog we will discuss some patterns which are often used in microservices applications which need to scale: Event Stream Event Sourcing, Polyglot Persistence, Memory Image, Command Query Responsibility Separation
The first post discussed creating a machine learning model using Apache Spark’s K-means algorithm to cluster Uber data based on location. This second post will discuss using the saved K-means model with streaming data to do real-time analysis of where and when Uber cars are clustered.
This post is the second in a series where we will go over examples of how MapR data scientist Joe Blue assisted MapR customers, in this case a regional bank, to identify new data sources and apply machine learning algorithms in order to better understand their customers. In this second part, we will cover a bank customer profitability 360° example, presenting the before, during and after.
According to Gartner, by 2020, a quarter of a billion connected cars will form a major element of the Internet of Things. Connected vehicles are projected to generate 25GB of data per hour, which can be analyzed to provide real-time monitoring and apps, and will lead to new concepts of mobility and vehicle usage.
With the rapid expansion of smart phones and other connected mobile devices, communications service providers (CSPs) need to rapidly process, store, and derive insights from the diverse volume of data travelling across their networks. Big data analytics can help CSPs improve profitability by optimizing network services/usage, enhancing customer experience, and improving security.
In this blog post, I’ll help you get started using Apache Spark’s spark.ml Logistic Regression for predicting cancer malignancy. Spark’s spark.ml library goal is to provide a set of APIs on top of DataFrames that help users create and tune machine learning workflows or pipelines.
This post will help you get started using Apache Spark Streaming for consuming and publishing messages with MapR Streams and the Kafka API. Spark Streaming is an extension of the core Spark API that enables continuous data stream processing.
Building a robust, responsive, secure data service for healthcare is tricky. For starters, healthcare data lends itself to multiple models: Document representation for patient profile views or updates; Graph representation to query relationships between patients, providers, and medications; Search representation for advanced lookups. This post will describe how stream-first architectures can solve these challenges, and look at how this has been implemented at Liaison Technologies.
This post is the first in a series where we will review examples of how Joe Blue, a Data Scientist in MapR Professional Services, assisted MapR customers in identifying new data sources and applying machine learning algorithms in order to better understand their customers. The first example in the series is an advertising customer 360°; the next example in the series will be banking and healthcare customer 360° examples.
