Google open sources a MapReduce framework for C/C++

Google open sources a MapReduce framework for C/C++ | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it
Google announced on Wednesday that the company is open sourcing a MapReduce framework that will let users run native C and C++ code in their Hadoop environments. Depending on how much traction MapReduce for C, or MR4C, gets and by whom, it could turn out to be a pretty big deal. Hadoop is famously, or…

The Science of Social Interactions on the Web

The Science of Social Interactions on the Web | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it

Last September, Google Research Scientist +Ed Chi gave the talk, The Science of Social Interactions on the Web, at the 3rd Stanford Conference for Computational Social Science (CompSS, http://goo.gl/v2sNTI). 

In his ~30 minute talk, Ed gives a broad overview of the active research in modeling successful online social systems, how they start, and ideas to improve them, touching upon ecological population growth models, cultural anthropologist Edward Hall’s proxemics (http://goo.gl/14ZI7L), and information diffusion across language barriers.  

Hosted by the Center for Computational Social Science (http://goo.gl/BJ1Jrc), CompSS provides a platform for collaboration across the social science and computer science research communities, advancing both with theories and understandings that can guide computational analysis.

ukituki's curator insight, October 16, 2013 6:43 AM

We investigate the behaviour of the recently proposed Quantum PageRank algorithm, in large complex networks. We find that the algorithm is able to univocally reveal the underlying topology of the network and to identify and order the most relevant nodes. Furthermore, it is capable to clearly highlight the structure of secondary hubs and to resolve the degeneracy in importance of the low lying part of the list of rankings.

Studying the Big Data Forest While Ignoring Its Trees

Studying the Big Data Forest While Ignoring Its Trees | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it

Google recently announced a promising new tool that might help researchers benefit from big data analysis, while at the same time protecting individuals’ privacy. This concept might seem sound counterintuitive at first, but it’s based on a solid mathematical foundation called “differential privacy.”

The project is called RAPPOR: https://github.com/google/rappor

Project ranks billions of drug interactions | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it

“It’s the largest computational docking ever done by mankind.”


By analysing the chemical structure of a drug, researchers can see if it is likely to bind to, or ‘dock’ with, a biological target such as a protein. Researchers have now unveiled a computational effort that used Google's supercomputers to assesses billions of potential dockings on the basis of drug and protein information held in public databases, finding potentially toxic side effects and allowing researchers to predict how and where a compound might work in the body.
