Big Learning Workshop
We're organizing the workshop on Big Learning: Advances in Algorithms and Data Management to be held at NIPS, Lake Tahoe, NV, on December 9 or 10, 2013. This year, the workshop aims to bring together the Large-scale Machine Learning and Database Systems communities to facilitate the cross-pollination of ideas.
Presentation @ BayLearn 2013
We presented our work on Optimistic Concurrency Control for Distributed Unsupervised Learning at BayLearn. In this work we explore the application of optimistic concurrency control (OCC) to the design of scalable, provably correct machine learning algorithms, and demonstrate its application to DP-means, a novel clustering algorithm.
