Matroid at Strata + Hadoop World

Neural Networks can be a challenge to train on Spark because of the communication-heavy nature of evaluating dense networks. At Strata + Hadoop World 2015 in New York, Reza presented the matrix computations and hardware acceleration primitives that allow neural networks to be trained on Spark.
