Introduction to Big Data
Offered By University of California San Diego
About this Course
Interested in increasing your knowledge of the Big Data landscape?  This course is for those new to data science and interested in understanding why the Big Data Era has come to be.  It is for those who want to become conversant with the terminology and the core concepts behind big data problems, applications, and systems.  It is for those who want to start thinking about how Big Data might be useful in their business or career.  It provides an introduction to one of the most common frameworks, Hadoop, that has made big data analysis easier and more accessible - increasing the potential for data to transform our world!

At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe the Big Data landscape including examples of real-world big data problems including the three key sources of Big Data: people, organizations, and sensors. 
  • Explain the V's of Big Data (volume, velocity, variety, veracity, valence, and value) and why each impacts data collection, monitoring, storage, analysis, and reporting.
  • Get value out of Big Data by using a 5-step process to structure your analysis. 
  • Identify what are and what are not big data problems and be able to recast big data problems as data science questions.
  • Provide an explanation of the architectural components and programming models used for scalable big data analysis.
  • Summarize the features and value of core Hadoop stack components including the YARN resource and job management system, the HDFS file system and the MapReduce programming model.
  • Install and run a program using Hadoop!

This course is for those new to data science.  No prior programming experience is needed, although the ability to install applications and utilize a virtual machine is necessary to complete the hands-on assignments.  

Big Data Modeling and Management Systems
Offered By University of California San Diego
Once you've identified a big data issue to analyze, how do you collect, store and organize your data using Big Data solutions?  In this course, you will experience various data genres and management tools appropriate for each.  You will be able to describe the reasons behind the evolving plethora of new big data platforms from the perspective of big data management systems and analytical tools.  Through guided hands-on tutorials, you will become familiar with techniques using real-time and semi-structured data examples.  Systems and tools discussed include AsterixDB, HP Vertica, Impala, Neo4j, Redis, SparkSQL. This course provides techniques to extract value from existing untapped data sources and discovering new data sources.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Recognize different data elements in your own work and in everyday life problems
  • Explain why your team needs to design a Big Data Infrastructure Plan and Information System Design
  • Identify the frequent data operations required for various types of data
  • Select a data model to suit the characteristics of your data 
  • Apply techniques to handle streaming data
  • Differentiate between a traditional Database Management System and a Big Data Management System
  • Appreciate why there are so many data management systems
  • Design a big data information system for an online game company

This course is for those new to data science.  Completion of Intro to Big Data is recommended.  No prior programming experience is needed, although the ability to install applications and utilize a virtual machine is necessary to complete the hands-on assignments.  Refer to the specialization technical requirements for complete hardware and software specifications.

Big Data Integration and Processing
Offered By University of California San Diego
About this Course

  • Identify when a big data problem needs data integration
  • Execute simple big data integration and processing on Hadoop and Spark platforms

This course is for those new to data science.  Completion of Intro to Big Data is recommended.  No prior programming experience is needed, although the ability to install applications and utilize a virtual machine is necessary to complete the hands-on assignments.  Refer to the specialization technical requirements for complete hardware and software specifications.

Machine Learning With Big Data
Offered By University of California San Diego
About this Course
Want to make sense of the volumes of data you have collected?  Need to incorporate data-driven decisions into your process?  This course provides an overview of machine learning techniques to explore, analyze, and leverage data.  You will be introduced to tools and algorithms you can use to create machine learning models that learn from data and to scale those models up to big data problems.

At the end of the course, you will be able to:
  • Design an approach to leverage data using the steps in the machine learning process.
  • Apply machine learning techniques to explore and prepare data for modeling.
  • Identify the type of machine learning problem in order to apply the appropriate set of techniques.
  • Construct models that learn from data using widely available open-source tools.
  • Analyze big data problems using scalable machine learning algorithms on Spark.
