  • Data science in Scala

    You can use https://github.com/scalanlp/breeze. A Scala library that's sorta a numpy/plotting equivalent. Unlike Spark which covers more use cases than just the classic Data Science workflow, Breeze is built specifically for "Data Science in Scala". The drawback is a classic one in Scala land where some major libraries abruptly get abandoned. Breeze's commits seem to have slowed down significantly and their website on their github page www.scalanlp.org is broken.

    I haven't checked in on this project in a long time, but Breeze is something akin to NumPy/SciPy.

    Although it may be a bit more work, you can do both machine learning and AI in Java. If you are doing deep learning, you can use DeepJavaLibrary (I do work on this one at Amazon). If you are looking for other ML algorithms, I have seen Smile, Tribuo, or some around Spark.
  • Anybody here using Java for machine learning?
    11 projects | /r/java | 13 Sep 2022
    For deploying a trained model there are a bunch of options that use Java on top of some native runtime like TF-Java (which I co-lead), ONNX Runtime, pytorch has inference for TorchScript models. Training deep learning models is harder, though you can do it for some of them in DJL. Training more standard ML models is much simpler, either via Tribuo, or using things like LibSVM & XGBoost directly, or other libraries like SMILE or WEKA.
  • What libraries do you use for machine learning and data visualizing in scala?

    I use smile https://github.com/haifengl/smile with ammonite and it feels pretty easy/good to work with. Of course for pure looking at data, and exploration, you're not going to beat python.

    Actually, it does. Scala has Spark for data science and some ML libs like Smile.
  • Machine learning on JVM

    I was using Smile for some period - https://haifengl.github.io/ - it's quite small and lightweight Java lib with some very basic algorithms - I was using in particularly cauterization. Along with this it provides Scala API.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing Breeze and Smile you can also consider the following projects:

Apache Spark - Apache Spark - A unified analytics engine for large-scale data processing

Deeplearning4j - Suite of tools for deploying and training deep learning models using the JVM. Highlights include model import for keras, tensorflow, and onnx/pytorch, a modular and tiny c++ library for running math code and a java based math library on top of the core c++ library. Also includes samediff: a pytorch/tensorflow like library for running deep learning using automatic differentiation.
