Meet Deeplearning4J and BIDData, two emerging Machine Learning technologies for the JVM

The explosive interest in building and deploying message-driven, elastic, resilient and responsive Reactive applications in enterprises continues to drive the need for real-time data streaming and instant decision-making. We see tools like Apache Spark, Cassandra, Riak, Kafka, Akka and Slick embracing this trend already. Additionally, the reality of Reactive Streams 1.0.0 is helping to pave the way for a new generation of somewhat alarming tools in the fields of Machine Learning and Deep Learning, which some believe may predicate the SkyNet takeover of Earth...

Nonetheless, there are two emerging projects in our ecosystem–Deeplearning4J and BIDData–that will get architects and developers passionate about data-centric computing. Let's quickly go over what these upcoming areas are in plain language.
