In this meetup, Hossein will introduce SparkR and how it integrates the two worlds of Spark and R. He will demonstrate one of the most important use cases of SparkR: exploratory analysis of very large data.
Specifically, he will show how Spark’s features and capabilities, such as caching distributed data and integrated SQL execution, complement R’s great tools such as visualization and diverse packages in a real world data analysis project with big data.
