About this Unit
"Big data" is the label for the ever-increasing gigantic amount of data with which humanity has to cope. The availability of data and the development of cloud computing architectures to process and analyse these data have made data analytics a central tool in our endeavours. This unit will introduce students to the realm of “big data", covering the important principles and technologies of retrieving, processing and managing massive real-world data sets. It is designed to provide the basic techniques required by any discipline that needs to make sense out of the growing amount of data, and to equip students with the knowledge and key set of skills set to be competitive in the growing job market in the analytics field.
