Big Data Analytics Tutorial -- IEEE Smart Tech

Big Data Analytics Tutorial -- IEEE Smart Tech
Fri, 11 November, 201604:11 PM, EDT (20:11, UTC)

This 3-hour tutorial is split into two discrete sections:

"Big Data Analytics Tools and Technologies"
For simplicity, this talk categorizes the vast, complex and evolving ecosystem of tools and technologies for Big Data Analytics into three functional areas for a deeper dive: Data Processing and Management, Data Intelligence, and Data Visualizations. The tutorial covers open source and commercial technologies that provide the foundation for supporting Big Data Analytics. Tools such as Hadoop, Spark, Storm, MPP Databases, and NoSQL Databases are discussed. 
Taught by Arpan Shah, CTO of Inovvo.  

“What is Big Data Analytics and Why Should I Care?”
The era of big data is sometimes referred to as "the end of demographics," because everything is now being quantified and tracked across a wide variety of application domains. The essence and outcome of big data is to transform "embedded knowledge" from bytes of data into human understanding, for faster discovery, deeper insights, better decisions, and identifying the "next-best action." This tutorial examines some of the techniques from machine learning that are most helpful in extracting discoveries, insights, and better decisions through data. These techniques include unsupervised learning (e.g., clustering, principal component analysis, association mining, link analysis, regression), supervised learning (classification, decision trees, neural networks), and semi supervised learning (outlier detection, novelty and anomaly discovery). Taught by Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton.

Also included in this package are the opening address and keynote sessions from this IEEE Smart Tech event.
