As a Data Scientist, I want to work on an RStudio Server image managed by Kubernetes with GPU capability. The motivation for doing this is that I can then access a machine learning rig that is 1) scale invariant (same from desktop to Cloud), 2) leverages Kubernetes for scheduling and 3) taps me into the […]
We are going to mess around with some of the R gpu packages using our eGPU Rig. Look here for how to set up RStudio and then use the gpuR, gputools and keras/tensorflow packages against an eGPU.
Let’s set up a data science workbench on OpenShift (docker/kubernetes). The components will be an RStudio Server executing SparkR instructions to a remote Apache Spark instance, all hosted within a local OpenShift cluster instance. Examples include processing AWS S3 Bucket hosted data from Spark. So saddle up and ride ole’ Roxy all the way! This lab is another in […]
Introduction [ UPDATE ] A new and improved approached to standing up a RStudio Server as a container instance can be found here. To know R is to love R. RStudio Server is a popular IDE tool that makes the R experience even better. And OpenShift makes it even easier again. R is for Riki. […]
This post continues experimenting with the sample application known as Weightwatcher to showcase a number of new technologies and techniques including: The all-in-one Vagrant image for OpenShift 3 The OpenShift Origin 3 oc rsync feature Drools 6.3.0.FINAL KIE Execution Server (Decision Server) A method for rule life cycle management with Containers
Overview This blog is about where technology meets the behavioural sciences, so here we have a post describing how technology can be an adjunct to encourage adherence to a weight management intervention. In this example we show how to monitor progress of the 5:2 Fast Diet using the Goal Attainment Scale method together with actual weight […]
Overview This post describes a simple methodology by which to organise and visualise a sales pipeline. Sales opportunities are scored along two dimensions – the maturity of the business case and your relative competitive standing. Once scored, results can be graphically depicted using a balloon chart in which the area of the circle scales to […]
The Drools rules engine provides a very powerful business rule processing capability. However, implementing even the most simple of use cases may require considerable client side scaffolding code. This post presents a pattern on how Drools services can be consumed and produced as a very simple service – really simple rules service (RSRS). The method […]
