Machine learning has become the hottest topic in computing. Industries are being disrupted by intelligent applications that use ML at their core. From e-commerce, through movie streaming, to taxis, new companies that rely on ML are displacing old incumbents. And, these applications require the training of models on ever-increasing data set sizes. Thus, a significant amount of effort has been devoted to running these methods on very large computer clusters, at significant financial cost and endless headaches.
