Machine Learning in the Cloud at DICE Lab
The Data Intensive Computing Ecosystems (DICE) lab at Clemson University is utilizing CloudyCluster for scientific computations in the area of scalable machine learning, and in particular, in topic modeling. One recent implementation by Google, PLDA+, uses message passing in a distributed cluster environment to speed up the calculation of topics in a very large corpus (100’s of GB); data was moved over Internet2 to the Amazon cloud.
Omnibond is a software development company focusing on products based in foundational technology areas.
