[MADlib-user] MADlib has been accepted as an ASF Incubator project


awesome news everybody: MADlib has been accepted as 
an ASF Incubator project:
We are now Apache MADlib (incubatiung) and with
that the infrastructure migration begins today:

Here's what is going to happen next in the next few days:
   0. Please STOP any commits to existing MADlib GitHub
   repos and updating of JIRAs. I will be migrating those
   bits of infrastructure over to ASF starting from tomorrow.
   There will be no changes to their state (commit history, etc.)
   just the location will be a new one.

   1. Make sure that you are subscribed to the new set
   of mailing lists:
   these are *public* mailing lists that are open to anybody. 
   All communication about project development is expected to
   happen in the open mostly on dev@...
   In order to subscribe yourself to all these MLs make sure to
   send an empty email to [ML name]-subscribe@...
   For example, in order to subscribe to dev@...
   send an empty email to dev-subscribe@...

   2. One exception to the public communication rule is:

[MADlib-user] Parallelization/performance of summary

How do I make madlib to execute more work in parallel? I have table with
500 numeric columns and 600k rows. Summary function runs for half an hour
because it uses single thread only (I think). I have server with 56
hardware threads and 100GB RAM, but I cannot utilize it with madlib summary
function. This is strange as this is easy to parallelize. Any hints?

[MADlib-user] proposed MADlib move to Apache Software Foundation

I would like to express my support for making MADlib an incubator project under the Apache Software Foundation.

As developers and users of the MADlib libraries, my development team is keenly interested in seeing this
project attract as wide an audience as possible.

We believe that MADlib is the most flexible, open and powerful mechanism for doing machine learning on data
in relational databases. And with open-source HAWQ, that capability is now extended to Hadoop.

We have seen MADlib used successfully in numerous real-world scenarios, covering projects in
healthcare, finance, media and manufacturing. By extending the community of contributors, we hope that
the potential of MADlib can be applied even more broadly.

[MADlib-user] MADlib's move to ASF

Hi all,

I was, just a few weeks ago, speaking at the Melbourne Data Science 
Meetup, telling about in-database analytics and giving MADlib as a 
case-in-point. Reaction was through the roof, and people were really 
excited about the possibilities. The problem, of course, is that MADlib 
was not usable outside GPDB/HAWQ (or, very hobbled, also PostgreSQL). I 
think that a move of MADlib to ASF would enable people to make it much 
more of an integral part of the Big Data ecosystem, including, for 
example, kicking off the development of a MADlib port for other MPP 
databases. The basic building blocks MADlib is built on are equally 
available in Teradata, SQL Server, etc.. So, why not?

My personal outlook on this is that things like Spark come and go, but 
SQL -- though completely unsexy -- is here to stay. Companies doing Big 
Data analytics have 90% of the data they analyse inside SQL DBs. SQL 
isn't going away any time soon, and data scientists all over the world 
need a SQL tool for in-database analytics, or else they are forced to 
sample down, etc., and all of the advantages of your big data go away.

When I was at Pivotal, my common question about MADlib was always "why 
isn't it more open to outside contributions?". Now it seems things are 
changing for the better.

Excellent news!

[MADlib-user] Chi-Squared Independence Result Discrepancy

Hello all,

I am having different results returned from the madlib.chi2_gof_test function. Per the documentation at:

(under “Chi-squared independence test”), I receive the following results using the same arrays:

  ─[ RECORD 1 ]────────────────
statistic                  │ 320.125868955635
p_value                 │ 1.39464882809491e-63
df                          │ 9
phi                        │ 4.4730154045931
contingency_coef │ 0.975909209031126

(138.289841626008 is the expected value per the docs). 

I also noticed the SQL had some syntax issues, namely:

   sum(observed) OVER (PARTITION BY id_y) AS expected

(there doesn’t seem to be a column separating the two). 

Thank you very much for any guidance.

[MADlib-user] multinom function not found

Hello, I was just tryign to run the multinomial function and got an error
that the function does not exist. I checked the madlib schema and sure
enough I'm not finding it in there.

I installed maybe a few months ago. Is there an easy way to check madlib
version? Is this a new function? Any idea why it would be missing?

[MADlib-user] what values are allowed for ARIMA non-seasonal orders

The input parameter is specified as an int[3]

Just wondering what values can be passed into that, 0, 1, 2 or any int?

BTW: I keep getting this message using the mail app on a mac, even when
specifying a plain text format: "The message's content type was not
explicitly allowed"
