Big Data Analytics (3 credits)

This course introduces methods and platforms for analyzing large amounts of data. Classical paradigms of parallel computing -- such as multithreading, message passing, and accelerator programming -- are presented. Machine learning and data mining techniques -- such as regression, clustering, classification, and deep learning -- are discussed. Platforms of computing with big data -- such as graph databases, distributed file systems, and map-reduce -- are introduced. This course prepares students to perform predictive modeling and explore large, complex datasets.
