I happened across a talk by Trevor Grant, an open source technical evangelist for the financial services sector, on Mahout.
I thought, “Wait, isnrsquo;t Mahout dead?” Apparently not.
In fact, Mahout is very much alive, nothing like what you once knew of it, and now running on GPUs.Mahout was the original machine learning framework for Hadoop. When MapReduce was the thing, Mahout was the vaunted elephant rider.

But then, as Grant recalls, “Mahout 0.09 released and all the Hadoop vendors froze at 0.09+.
It was 0.09 with some bug patches. No one ever bumped up to 0.10.”[ Roundup: TensorFlow, Spark MLlib, Scikit-learn, MXNet, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, and Caffe machine learning and deep learning frameworks. | Get a digest of the dayrsquo;s top tech stories in the InfoWorld Daily newsletter. ]Nonetheless, the Mahout project is still active. “A lot of the projects have people paid to work on them, but Mahout doesnrsquo;t. Wersquo;re like a bunch of gypsies that wander around in companies like the MapReduces of the world,” Grant says. “All the Mahout and former Mahout people are in very, very high places in Fortune 500 companies or CTOs of startups, but we donrsquo;t have a company of our own. Lucidworks is the closest thing.
I didnrsquo;t realize but there are a lot of Mahout committers and PMCs [project management committees] kind of lurking about at Lucidworks.” (Full disclosure: I didnrsquo;t realize this either, even though I work for Lucidworks. —AO.)To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
