Parallelisation : Writing a linear matrix algorithm for Map-Reduce

There are multiple ways to skin matrix multiplication. If you begin to think about it, there are probably 4 or 5 ways in which you could approach matrix multiplication. In this post, we look at another, easier, way of multiplying two matrices, and attempt to build a MapReduce version of the algorithm. Before we dive into the code itself, we’ll quickly review the actual algebraic process we’re trying to parallelise. Continue reading Parallelisation : Writing a linear matrix algorithm for Map-Reduce
