This course focuses on building `web-intelligence’ applications exploiting big data sources arising social media, mobile devices and sensors, using new big-data platforms. The past decade has witnessed the development of big data platforms and associated technologies such as distributed file systems, no-SQL databases and stream computing engines. Online advertising, machine translation, natural language understanding, sentiment mining, personalized medicine, and national security are some examples of web-intelligence applications that are already wide-spread in different business areas. In this course we explore some such applications and related techniques such as text analytics, social media analysis, cloud and distributed systems, big data visualization using Tableau and GIS along with parallel implementations using map-reduce and related platforms.
