Storage, retrieval, analysis, and knowledge discovery using Big Data has made significant inroads in several domains in industry, research, and academia. In this course, we will look at the dominant software systems, models and algorithms for coping with Big Data. Topics covered include scalable computing models, large-scale non-traditional data storage frameworks including graph, key-value, and column-family storage systems; data stream analysis; scalable prediction models and in-memory storage systmes.


- Cluster based computing models for Big Data Analytics
- Batch and streaming computing models
- Peta-scale Storage Systems
- Machine Learning Models for Big Data
- Large scale Graph Analysis
- Large Scale Recommendation Systems and Social Media
- Algorithmic Techniques for Big Data

Research articles are listed in the schedule page.
