Introduction to the world of Hadoop

Gordon Rios (Cork Constraint Computation Centre, University College of Cork, Ireland)

Location: Aula 108, ETSE
Start time: Oct. 29, 2010, 12 p.m.

Abstract

In this talk I will introduce one of the most popular computing technologies called Hadoop. It was originally developed for large scale text mining based upon the principles of map-reduce from Google. Hadoop and related tools have rapidly become one of the most widespread frameworks for large scale data mining and analytics applications in a variety of settings. It is hoped that this introduction will help researchers and scientists see applications for this remarkable set of technologies in their own fields.
