AMP Camp Big Data Bootcamp

Course | August 22 | 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Banatao Auditoruim


The first UC Berkeley AMP Camp will be hosted in Berkeley August 21-22, 2012. AMPLab researchers work at the intersection of machine learning, cloud computing, and crowdsourcing. We are integrating next-generation Algorithms, Machines, and People to make sense of Big Data, and want to share our expertise with you.

AMP Camp attendees will learn to solve Big Data problems using components of the Berkeley Data Analytics System (BDAS) and cutting edge machine learning algorithms.

Specific sessions include:

*Hands-on lessons teaching developers to use Spark and Shark, which are capable of running iterative jobs up to 30x faster than Hadoop MapReduce

*State-of-the-art scalable machine learning algorithms

*Techniques for using the crowd to answer questions that can’t be answered by computers alone

*Case-studies presented by active BDAS users
