Presto: Distributed R for Big Data

Data scientists use sophisticated algorithms to obtain insights. However, what usually takes tens of lines of MATLAB or R code is now been rewritten in Hadoop like systems and applied at scale in the industry. Instead of rewriting algorithms in a new model, can we stretch the limits of R and reuse it for analyzing Big Data? We present our early experiences at HP Labs as we attempt to answer this question.
