    Wow, I didn’t expect to find monoids there. However, I would have loved if there was a link to more information or how the monoids are used there. I missed that part between monoids and how they are useful for those probabilistic algorithms

      MapReduce is actually in the monoid wikipedia entry. Not that this is exactly MapReduce but the idea mostly holds. The Summingbird framework was also based heavily around monoids IIRC
