Tutorial: Introduction to Big Data

Side Track EDF2013, Day 1 09.04.2013, 11.30am to 12.30pm

The tutorial on Big Data will cover the current state of the Big Data area of research and applications. The emphasis will be on the research aspects of the Big-Data presenting the characteristic algorithms running under the hood of the Big Data systems. The key contribution will be the systematic overview of the key building blocks which make Big Data different from the traditional data mining, and semantic web algorithms.

In the last part of the tutorial we will present several working systems explaining the architecture and design decisions.
