Random Graphs with Apache Spark’s GraphX

March 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

About the Event:

Sandeep’s talk will be about random graphs. Random graphs have some very well-defined properties, and have been useful in modeling behaviors of real-life networks. He will be showing some implementations of random graphs using Spark’s GraphX library, and will discuss how the mathematically-derived properties of these graphs can come in useful while validating implementations of graph algorithms.

About the Speaker:

Sandeep Narayanaswami is a physicist turned data scientist. His day job involves building models, contributing to open source projects, and checking out new machine learning platforms and implementations. His background biases him towards cool algorithms, and some of his current interests are streaming and graph algorithms.

About the Galvanize Data Science Immersive:

This program is for people who are serious about becoming data scientists. Over the course of 12 weeks you’ll learn the tools, techniques, and fundamental concepts you need to know to make an impact as a data scientist. You’ll work through messy, real-world data sets to gain experience across the data science stack: data munging, exploration, modeling, validation, visualization, and communication. Our unique setting in the Galvanize community of startups and tech companies is the perfect place to learn and expand your network!
