- January 6, 2015 Scala Data Pipelines for Music Recommendations Chris Johnson @MrChrisJohnson
- Who am I?? • Chris Johnson – Machine Learning guy from NYC – Focused on music recommendations – Formerly a PhD student at UT Austin
- Spotify in Numbers 3 •Started in 2006, now available in 58 markets•50+ million active users, 15 million paying subscribers•30+ million songs, 20,000 new songs added per day•1.5 billion playlists•1 TB user data logged per day•900 node Hadoop cluster•10,000+ Hadoop jobs run every day
- 4Music Recommendations at Spotify •Discover•Radio•Related Artists
- How can we find good recommendations? 5 •Manual Curation •Manually Tag Attributes •Audio Content •News, Blogs, Text analysis •Collaborative Filtering
- Music Recommendations Data Flow 6
- Why ? 7
- Why ? 8 Interview Question
- The Genre Toplist Problem 9 •Assume we have access to daily log data for all plays on Spotify. •Goal: Calculate the top 1k artists on for each genre based on total daily plays {"User": “userA”, "Date": “2015-01-10", "Artist": “Beyonce", "Track": "Halo", "Genres": ["Pop", "R&B", "Soul"]} {"User": “userB”, "Date": “2015-01-10”, "Artist": "Led Zeppelin”, "Track": "Achilles Last Stand", "Genres": ["Rock", "Blues Rock", "Hard Rock"]} ……….
- Genre Toplists with Python MapReduce 10
- 11 Scalding is a Scala library that makes it easy to specify Hadoop MapReduce jobs. Scalding is built on top of Cascading, a Java library that abstracts away low-level Hadoop details. Scalding is comparable to Pig, but offers tight integration with Scala, bringing advantages of Scala to your MapReduce jobs. -Twitter
- Genre Toplists with Scalding 12
- Why ? 13 •Data pipeline flows naturally follow the functional paradigm •Productivity without sacrificing performance•Active community and ecosystem -Scalding-Summingbird-Algebird-Spark -Breeze•Many data storage solutions integrate well with JVM-Cassandra-HBase-Voldemort-Datomic

- sortWithTake doesn’t fully sort 16 •Uses PriorityQueueMonoid from Algebird library •What is a Monoid??-Definition: A Set S and a binary operation • : S x S —> S such that 1. Associativity: For all a, b, and c in S the equation (a • b) • c = a • (b • c) holds 2. Identity Element: There exists an element e in S such that for every element a in S, the equations e • a = a • e = a hold •Example: The natural numbers N under the addition operation. (1 + 2) + 3 = 1 + (2 + 3) 0 + 1 = 1 + 0 = 1 class PriorityQueueMonoid[K](max : Int)(implicit ord : Ordering[K]) extends Monoid[PriorityQueue[K]]
- sortWithTake 17 •Uses PriorityQueueMonoid from Algebird •PriorityQueue aggregations form a commutative monoid! 1. Associative: PQ1 = [ (Jay Z, 545), (Miles Davis, 272), …] PQ2 = [ (Beyonce, 731), (Kurt Vile, 372), …] PQ3 = [ (Twin Shadow, 87), … ] PQ1 ++ (PQ2 ++ PQ3) = (PQ1 ++ PQ2) ++ PQ3 2.Commutative: PQ1 ++ PQ2 = PQ2 ++ PQ1 3.Identity: PQ1 ++ EmptyPQ = PQ1 class PriorityQueueMonoid[K](max : Int)(implicit ord : Ordering[K]) extends Monoid[PriorityQueue[K]]
- sortWithTake 18 •Uses PriorityQueueMonoid from Algebird •Ok, great observation… but what’s the point of all this!??-All monoid aggregations and reduces can begin on the Mapper side and finish on the Reducer side since the order doesn’t matter! -Scalding implicitly takes care of Mapper side combining and custom combiner -Reduces network traffic to reducers class PriorityQueueMonoid[K](max : Int)(implicit ord : Ordering[K]) extends Monoid[PriorityQueue[K]] reduced traffic

- How do we store track metadata? 20 •Lots of metadata associated with tracks (100+ columns!)- artist, album, record label, genres, audio features, …•Options: 1. Store each track as one long row with many columns -Sending lots of data over network when you only need 1 or 2 columns 2. Store each column as a separate data source -Jobs require costly joins, especially when requiring many columns•Can we do better?..
- Apache Parquet to the rescue! 21 •Apache Parquet is a columnar storage format available to any project in the Hadoop ecosystem, regardless of the choice of data processing framework, data model or programming language. •Efficiently read a subset of columns without scanning the entire dataset •Row group: A logical horizontal partitioning of the data into rows. There is no physical structure that is guaranteed for a row group. A row group consists of a column chunk for each column in the dataset. •Column chunk: A chunk of the data for a particular column. These live in a particular row group and is guaranteed to be contiguous in the file. •Predicate push-down: Define predicates (,

- Luigi - data plumbing since 2012 24 •Workflow management framework developed by Spotify •Python luigi configuration takes care of dependency resolution, job scheduling, fault tolerance, etc. •Support for Hive queries, MapReduce jobs, python snippets, Scalding, Crunch, Spark, and more! •Like Oozie but without all of the messy XML https://github.com/spotify/luigi
