Why the Apache Mahout is deprecated and what's the alternatives ?!

Hi all,

I have read in the Mahout Installation docs that it was deprecated since CDH 5.5 and it will be removed at CDH 6.0 as I see in the Deprecated items.
Any idea about the why? and the alternatives?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks @Matt Brandwein.

From a computational force point of view, yes (knowing that Mahout also uses Spark),but what about the Mahout algorithms library? is Spark has some libriries too?

In fact, the answer is yes, I found that Spark has the MLlib Library for Machine Learning algorithms, and it seems great.

As you mentioned correctly Apache Spark is offering MlLib (or ML) which it comes with a set of features for some basic NLP, most popular algorithms for clustering and classifications, etc.

 

But that is not all! You can use many libraries which are released to complete Spark in a domain of Machine Learning and Deep Learning. Basically, these libraries are using Spark APIs and Engine.
