An Architecture for Real-Time Geo-tracking with Python, Celery, RabbitMQ, and More

An Architecture for Real-Time Geo-tracking with Python, Celery, RabbitMQ, and More | BigData & OpenData Italia | Scoop.it

One of the key challenges with this type of architecture is when you need to get state from the database. Clients end up polling for many real-time tracking scenarios. This presents a problem when, for example, you have 1000s of vehicles confirming state every second. Polling the database at this rate can create an overwhelming and unnecessary amount of traffic. And it doesn’t scale.

I have implemented a very similar stack on a very high volume site, instead of the Node/Websocket we used Erlang/Ejabberd which offers many advantages over the Node approach. Certainly location is still one of the big areas of mobile development that haven't really been fully exploited.

DG2's curator insight, September 3, 2013 8:10 AM

Many ML algorithms are most readily expressed in terms of local, vertex-centric computations. Think of label propagation, k-means, spectral clustering ... All in all, moving from vector spaces to graphs is the natural thing to do in many applications. Giraph provides an efficient way to run this kind of algorithms on top of an existing Hadoop infrastructure.

Early detection of Twitter trends explained

Early detection of Twitter trends explained | BigData & OpenData Italia | Scoop.it

A couple of weeks ago on Halloween night, I was out with some friends when my advisor sent me a message to check web.mit.edu, right now. It took me a few seconds of staring to realize that an article about my masters thesis work on a nonparametric approach to detecting trends on Twitter was on thehomepage of MIT. Over the next few days, it was picked up by Forbes, Wired, Mashable, Engadget, The Boston Herald and others, and my inbox and Twitter Connect tab were abuzz like never before.
