CS-GY 6333 Massive Data Analysis: Tentative Schedule -- subject to change

  • Lecture: Mondays, 1:00pm-3:25pm at 2MTC, room 9.011.


  • Massive Data Analysis 2014: Class project
  • Aditi Nakta, our TA, will hold office hours on Tuesdays from 1 - 3 pm @ 2 MTC room 10.98D
  • Your Gradiance assignment on MapReduce has been posted: http://www.newgradiance.com/services. If you haven't registered yet, do so and use the class token 1AEF5F24. Make sure to use your official NYU email and id when you register.
  • On Sept 22nd, I distributed AWS tokens that will be needed for your assignments. If you have not received your token, let me know.
  • Your first assignment has been posted -- see details below and in NYU Classes.

Background (4 weeks)

Week 1 -- Sept 8: Course Overview; the evolution of Data Management

Week 2 -- Sept 15: Provenance and Reproducibility

  • Github setup:

Week 3 -- Sept 22: Introduction to Databases; Relational Model and SQL

Week 4 -- Sept 29: Overview: Advanced SQL and Query Optimization

Big Data Foundations and Infrastructure (3 weeks)

Week 5 -- Oct 6: Cloud computing, Map Reduce and Hadoop

  • Lab: after the lecture, you will work on an in-class exercise. For this you need to install Hadoop on your laptop and have your account setup on AWS. See instructions below.
  • You will use two different Hadoop configurations:
    • Local (on your laptop)
    • Amazon AWS: Each student should have received a token with $100 credit towards computing time at AWS. If you have not received the token yet, contact us immediately! When using AWS, always remember to terminate your instances! If you don't, you will be charged and you are responsible for the charges beyond your credit.
    • See installation instructions for Hadoop on your local machine and how to setup your AWS account in http://vgc.poly.edu/~juliana/courses/MassiveDataAnalysis2014/Lectures/HadoopExerciseInstructions.pdf
    • Warning: Install Hadoop in your machine and setup your AWS account before class starts. There will be no time for installing software during our in-class exercise.

  • Required reading:
    • Data-Intensive Text Processing with MapReduce, Chapters 1 and 2
    • Mining of Massive Datasets (2nd Edition), Chapter 2 - 2.1 and 2.2 (Large-Scale File Systems and Map-Reduce).

Week 6 -- Oct 13: Fall Break

Week 7 -- Oct 20: Big Data Analysis with Myria

Week 7 -- Oct 27: Algorithm Design for MapReduce

  • Required reading:
