Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course introduces central methods and approaches for the organization and analysis of large and scientific data: distributed data repositories, index, and access structures, hashing, classification, and clustering techniques. Specific methods for structured data such as sets, images, documents, and graphs are discussed. In programming exercises, students learn ways to realize similarity search and data mining on large data, e.g., parallelisation with MapReduce, Apache Spark, or filter-refinement techniques.

Subject-specific goals:
- Analysis of scientific data
- Interpretation and evaluation of results of the analysis process
- Choosing and applying techniques for structured data
- Implementation of scalable solutions for large amounts of data
- Users support and advice

Generic goals:
- Teamwork
- Improvement of programming skills
- Understanding of interplay in data mining and scientific computing
