Big Data Lecture Series Kicks Off Tomorrow

On Wednesday, September 12, bigdata@CSAIL, CSAIL’s new initiative focused on tackling the challenges presented by this burgeoning field, kicks off its first lecture series with a talk by Google fellows Jeffrey Dean and Sanjay Ghemawat. “Living with Big Data: Challenges and Opportunities” will be presented in the Patil/Kiva conference room (32-G449) in the Stata Center from 4:00pm-5:30pm.
Dean and Ghemawat will discuss some of the systems and techniques Google uses to manage large data sets and large clusters of machines. The talk will cover storage systems, fault tolerance, compression, debugging, performance tuning, and latency reduction. The speakers will also touch on highlights of a recent system for scaling deep learning techniques to large amounts of data.
