Course Overview

In the Big Data course, the trainees will learn how big data is driving organizational change and the key challenges organizations face when trying to analyze massive data sets.

Trainees will learn fundamental techniques, such as data mining and stream processing. They will also learn how to design and implement PageRank algorithms using MapReduce, a programming paradigm that allows for massive scalability across hundreds or thousands of servers in a Hadoop cluster. They will learn how big data has improved web search and how online advertising systems work.

By the end of this course, you will have a better understanding of the various applications of big data methods in industry and research.
