PowerGraph: Distributed Graph-Parallel Computation on Natural Graphs

PowerGraph: Distributed Graph-Parallel Computation on Natural Graphs - Gonzalez et al. 2012 A lot of the time, we want to perform computations on graphs that model the real world. As we saw in Exploring Complex Networks, such graphs often follow a power-law degree distribution (i.e., a few nodes are very highly connected, and many nodes … Continue reading PowerGraph: Distributed Graph-Parallel Computation on Natural Graphs

Distributed GraphLab: A framework for machine learning and data mining in the cloud

Distributed GraphLab: A framework for machine learning and data mining in the cloud - Low et al. 2012 Two years on from the initial GraphLab paper we looked at yesterday comes this extension to support distributed graph processing for larger graphs, including data mining use cases. In this paper, we extend the GraphLab framework to … Continue reading Distributed GraphLab: A framework for machine learning and data mining in the cloud

GraphLab: A new framework for parallel machine learning

GraphLab: A new framework for parallel machine learning - Low et al. 2010 In this paper we propose GraphLab, a new parallel framework for ML which exploits the sparse structure and common computational patterns of ML algorithms. GraphLab enables ML experts to easily design and implement efficient scalable parallel algorithms by composing problem specific computation, … Continue reading GraphLab: A new framework for parallel machine learning

Pregel: A System for Large-Scale Graph Processing

Pregel: A System for Large-Scale Graph Processing - Malewicz et al. (Google) 2010 "Many practical computing problems concern large graphs." Yesterday we looked at some of the models for understanding networks and graphs. Today's paper focuses on processing of graphs, especially the efficient processing of large graphs where large can mean billions of vertices and … Continue reading Pregel: A System for Large-Scale Graph Processing
