Europe Code Week: Big Data Machine Learning Fundamentals Lab

Participation is free, space is limited. Please register here.

Making sense of the vast amount of data constantly being produced in our modern society is perhaps the most important challenge for today's computer scientist.

At the Learning Machines group at SICS we are building the next generation analytical tools for working with big data.

This lab is intended to give an introduction to the map-reduce computation paradigm as well as a brief overview of current open source platforms. We will start from a basic level, work with real world data sets collected from social networks and hopefully by the end of the day write our own machine learning algorithms!

For this lab you will need to bring your own computer.

This lab is arranged by SICS and Swedsoft and part of Europe Code Week Oct 11-17.
