In this talk, we'll present techniques for visualizing large scale machine learning systems in Spark. These are techniques that are employed by Netflix to understand and refine the machine learning models behind Netflix’s famous recommender systems that are used to personalize the Netflix experience for their 99 millions members around the world. Essential to these techniques is Vegas, a new OSS Scala library that aims to be the “missing MatPlotLib” for Spark/Scala. We’ll talk about the design of Vegas and its usage in Scala notebooks to visualize Machine Learning Models.
