SHORT DESCRIPTION

According to the home page (oct 1 2014): The Apache Mahout™ project's goal is to build a scalable machine learning library.

Quote: “Currently Mahout supports mainly three use cases: Recommendation mining takes users' behavior and from that tries to find items users might like. Clustering takes e.g. text documents and groups them into groups of topically related documents. Classification learns from exisiting categorized documents what documents of a specific category look like and is able to assign unlabelled documents to the (hopefully) correct category.”
