QST IS 843 - Big Data Analytics & Distributed Computation: Methods & Applications
This Level 3 analytics course will cover how to perform statistical analysis of large datasets that do not fit on a single computer. We will design a Hadoop cluster on Google Cloud Platform to analyze these datasets. Utilizing Spark, Hive, and other technologies, students will write scripts to process the data, generate reports and dashboards, and incorporate common business applications. Students will learn how to use these tools through Jupyter Notebooks and experience the power of combining live code, equations, visualizations, and narrative text. Employer interest in these skills is very high. Basic programming in python (e.g. IS717/IS756), and basic analytics (e.g. IS833/IS834) are prerequisite.
