Techopedia Explains Apache Mahout
Apache Mahout is all about machine learning and the project is aimed at making a powerful tool for building intelligent applications faster and easier.
This used to be the exclusive domain of academics and corporations with large research budgets, but in today’s data-driven world, the need for intelligent applications that can learn from data and user data is increasing.
Apache Mahout is used for creating applications with machine-learning techniques such as clustering, categorization, and collaborative filtering for finding commonalities in large data groups or for tagging large volumes of web content.
- Scalable to large data sets - the core algorithms are implemented on large scalable, distributed systems.
- Scalable to support different business cases - distributed under commercially friendly Apache Software License
- Scalable community - there is a vast, vibrant, diverse and responsive community to facilitate discussions on the project and its potential use cases.
