Course Objectives

After the completion of Apache Mahout Course at Spectramind, you should be able to:

• Gain an insight into the Machine Learning techniques.
• Understand various Machine Learning Techniques and how to implement these using 'Apache Mahout'.
• Understand the recommendation system.
• Learn Collaborative filtering, Clustering and Categorization.
• Overview of recommendation platform.
• Analyse Big Data using Hadoop and Mahout.
• Implementing a recommender using MapReduce.

Who should go for this course?

This course is designed for all those who are interested in learning Big Data technologies and write intelligent applications using Apache Mahout.


Some of the prerequisites for learning Apache Mahout are familiarity with Hadoop framework and other ecosystem components . Also, having a mathematical background with Beginner level Java development knowledge will be an added advantage. The basic Java and Hadoop knowledge is recommended and not mandatory as these concepts will also be covered during the course.

Why Learn Apache Mahout?

In the modern information age of exponential data growth, the success of companies and enterprises depends on how quickly and efficiently they turn vast amounts of data into actionable information. Whether it's for processing hundreds or thousands of personal e-mail messages a day or driving user intent from petabytes of weblogs, the need for tools that can organize and enhance data has never been greater. Therein lies the premise and the promise of the field of machine learning and Apache Mahout.
