Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-5021) GaussianMixtureEM should be faster for SparseVector input
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2015 03:00:41 GMT


Manoj Kumar commented on SPARK-5021:

Ah, I see what you mean (Google helped me), I never knew that was called soft assignment.
But I still think there would be benefits if we do not convert the input vectors to dense
and keep everything else dense.

> GaussianMixtureEM currently converts everything to dense vectors.  It would be nice if
it were faster for SparseVectors (running in time linear in the number of non-zero values).
> However, this may not be too important since clustering should rarely be done in high
