Scala and Spark for Good

David Patterson is a professor at UC Berkeley. He wrote an OpEd piece in the New York Times. It was a call to arms that said, if computer scientists can attack the problem of cancer, then we have a moral obligation to do so. This video explores the intersection of genomics and big data and discusses how you can get involved to end cancer. Visit OpenGenomics.io to learn more.

How big data analytics help hospitals stop a killer

ClearStory Data, powered by Apache Spark, provides fast-cycle, near real-time measurements on the massive volumes of biosensor data analyzed by algorithms modeled after clinical practice standards used in conventional human clinical monitoring disciplines. A patient "storyboard" identifies and alerts clinicians to patients who might be at risk based upon the biosensor measures. Serum level testing can then be used to confirm the presence of SIRS and/or sepsis.

MemSQL’s Essential Resources for Apache Spark

There’s no doubt about it. Apache Spark is well on its way to becoming a ubiquitous technology. Over the past year, we’ve created resources to help our users understand the real-world use cases for Spark as well as showcase how our technologies compliment one another. Now, we’ve organized and consolidated those materials into this very post.
