Subject Re: SVM in Mahout
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2012 13:19:32 GMT
I'm just asking because I review a paper where Mahout's SVM support on
M/R is mentioned :)

As far as I recall All-Reduce is map + an aggregation tree that feeds
back the result?

Giraph supports aggregators where every worker instance preaggregates
the data, the master computes the final aggregation and feeds it back to
the workers. So you could have a 1-level aggregation tree out of the box.

That is the primary thing missing to get parallel sgd.
