In a typical Anatomy of MapReduce job, input files are read from the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). Data is usually compressed to reduce file sizes. After decompression, serialized bytes are transformed into Java objects before being passed to a user-defined map() function. Conversely, output records are serialized, compressed, and eventually pushed back to HDFS.

If you’ve been following the world of industry-grade LLM technology for the last year, you’ve likely observed a plethora of frameworks and tools in production. Startups are building everything from Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG) automation to custom fine-tuning services.

Scatter plots, bar plots, line plots, box plots, and heatmaps are the most frequently used plots for data visualization. Although they are simple and known to almost everyone, I believe they are not the right choice to cover every possible scenario.

Data scientists are coming to terms with the fact that they have to work with databases if they want their analytics to scale. That is pretty normal. But one of the bigger challenges is that these data scientists don’t really know how to make that leap. What do they need to know to make that transition?

The post discusses the concept of "machine unlearning" - the ability to selectively remove or forget specific data from a trained machine learning model. It explores the motivations, approaches, challenges, and potential applications of unlearning, particularly in the context of large language models and AI safety concerns.

It is time to end the tyranny of people becoming interested in database implementation and building a BTree. Let us turn to the succor of immutable storage. Today we are starting a new series. I know I have several ongoing series. But writing for different series requires different states of mind and I make the rules here.
