And this is where Spark comes into the picture. Spark offers a reliable distributed/clustered computing framework that sits on top of the Hadoop framework and if
If you are on this page, chances are you have heard of the incredible capability of XGBoost. Not only it “boasts” higher accuracy compared to similar boasted tree algorithms like GBM (Gradient Descent Machine), thanks to a more regularized model formalization to control over-fitting, it enables many Kaggle Masters to win Kaggle competitions as well.
