The courses are partly hold in English.
Classes of the two courses start on October 6, the tutorials in the subsequent week.
This time, the overarching topic of the two courses is “Big Data – chances, risks, technologies”. The course investigates methods and potentials of information discovery, in particular the automatic extraction of meaning, over distributed collections containing structured and unstructured data. Meaning of data will be represented by domain-specific languages.
To successfully pass this course it is expected that you complete a programming project using one of the following tools:
- Apache Solr – http://lucene.apache.org/solr/
- Apache Hadoop – http://hadoop.apache.org/
- myDistiller – http://sourceforge.net/projects/mydistiller/
Your project should cover both courses! It may even include Project Management (see announcement below).
You have to present your project twice, mid-term and at the end of the course.
I recommend to form project teams of three to four members. Please start now to think about possible teams and the application scope of your project. We shouldn’t to loose too much time with setting up project scopes and teams.
We are going to discuss project scopes during the first sessions of the course.
Teams and project topics are going to be fixed on October 13/14. This is a strict deadline. Afterwards there is no more registration possible for both courses.
