Course details

Skills you will learn
Who should do this course?
  • This course is designed for those who want to learn the concepts of modern distributed file systems and MapReduce.
What are the course deliverables?
  • There will be about 2 hours of video to watch each week, broken into small segments. There will be automated homeworks to do for each week, and a final exam.
More about this course
  • The course introduces the participant to modern distributed file systems and MapReduce, including what distinguishes good MapReduce algorithms from good algorithms in general. The rest of the course is devoted to algorithms for extracting models and information from large datasets. Participants will learn how Google's PageRank algorithm models importance of Web pages and some of the many extensions that have been used for a variety of purposes. It will then cover locality-sensitive hashing, a bit of magic that allows you to find similar items in a set of items so large you cannot possibly compare each pair. When data is stored as a very large, sparse matrix, dimensionality reduction is often a good way to model the data, but standard approaches do not scale well; it will talk about efficient approaches. Many other large-scale algorithms are covered as well, as outlined in the course syllabus.
