SC 205: Big Data. Class presentation available.

It is estimated that 90 percent of all the world’s data has been generated in the last two years. This data can be either used or abused. In this course, we will discover how we can extract useful information from this digital fire-hose. The term Big Data describes the tasks of storing, processing, and analyzing extremely large amounts of data previously unavailable, ignored, or unable to be processed by older technologies.  Big Data is distinguished not only by its huge volume, but also by the concurrent presence of disparate data types and much faster data capture rates.  We will review how Big Data is collected, stored, analyzed and searched, and explore its implications in fields ranging from manufacturing to Constitutional rights and national security.

Tuesday, March 7: Introduction to Big Data and Its Social Impact – Dr. Dave Schrader. High-level overview of Big Data, including case studies illustrating how companies derive value from it.
