Mining Massive Data Sets
The course will discuss data mining and machine learning algorithms for analyzing very large amounts of data. The emphasis will be on Map Reduce as a tool for creating parallel algorithms that can process very large amounts of data.
Important course information will be posted on this web page and announced in class. You are responsible for all material that appears here and should check this page for updates frequently.
- 1/8: The first class will be held at 9:30am on Tuesday 1/8, in NVidia Auditorium, Jen-Hsun Huang Engineering Center.
