Topic: Big Data Analytics
When: September 7, 2018
Where: Forum Mozartplatz, Mozartgasse 4, 1010 Vienna
This workshop introduces researchers to the notion of “Big Data” — an evolving set of challenges and associated techniques for wrangling large, diverse, and complex datasets in order to extract useful information. Participants will learn various dimensions of Big Data, such as volume, variety, velocity, variability, and veracity. They will participate in a Big Data simulation game that provides a first-hand view of common Big Data challenges. This will be followed by an overview that attaches Big Data concepts to the simulation game experiences and provides participants with a theoretical toolbox that can be used later in the workshop. Participants will be invited to bring up their own Big Data problems to be analyzed in breakout groups, as an opportunity to apply learned concepts to real-world Big Data problems. The workshop lecturer will also provide a walkthrough of a real-world Big Data problem and working solution. Overall, the module aims at providing participants with an overview of Big Data concepts, a hand-on grasp of Big Data challenges, and the courage and basic skills needed to approach new Big Data issues in the future.
