Topic: Intro to Natural Language Processing with Spark Streaming

If you remember the 2014 shootings at Parliament Hill, it was a horrible event. There has actually been conjecture that the police department did not know as much as Twitter did. Given the exact same timeline, it’s been claimed that twitter was more accurate. This motivates why Matt would like to be able to use streaming with Natural Language Processing. Matt will demonstrate Streaming and Natural Language Processing in this talk and walk through the necessary code in Spark > Scala.

Speaker: Matt Andruff Matt Andruff is YoppWorks’ former Hortonworks Practice lead. He has over 15 years of computer experience and also has a Bachelor of Science degree (Combined degree of Computer Science and Mathematics). In the last three years, Matt has been focused on the topic of Big Data/ Fast Data. Matt is originally from Vancouver, B.C., but currently resides in the same town as YoppWorks headquaters in Ottawa, Canada.
