Hi,



1.       Is Spark suited for online learning algorithms? From what I've read so far (mainly
from this slide<http://www.slideshare.net/Hadoop_Summit/spark-and-shark>), it seems
not but I could be wrong.



2.       This is a Scala/JVM question. How easy is it to interop with native code (C++)? For
me, it's important to be able to use MKL, CUDA, and write custom C++ code to utilize SIMD
instructions.

(It's hard to talk about distributed computing when we haven't optimized at the single machine
level.)



I'm new to Spark so apologize if you find my questions too naïve :).



Thanks.

-Ken
