Twitter open sources Storm-Hadoop hybrid called Summingbird

Twitter open sources Storm-Hadoop hybrid called Summingbird | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it
Twitter has open sourced a “streaming MapReduce” system called Summingbird that makes Hadoop and Storm play nicer together so applications that require both batch and stream processing can do their jobs with as little complexity as possible.

webDEVILopers's curator insight, September 4, 2013 8:56 AM

In the case of Twitter, Hadoop handles batch processing, Storm handles stream processing, and the hybrid system is called Summingbird. It’s not a tool for every job, but it sounds pretty handy for those it’s designed to address. Hybrid systems like this are actually becoming more common as companies realize they can’t survive in a real-time world with Hadoop alone.

ARM Server “Microservers” Seek to Transform Cloud, Big Data | Cloud Computing Journal | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it

"A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They're called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general."

Strange Loop 2013

Strange Loop 2013 | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it

Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web.  

 

Strange Loop was created in 2009 by software developer Alex Miller and is now run by a team of St. Louis-based friends and developers under Strange Loop LLC, a for-profit but not particularly profitable venture.

Crowdsourcing and Human Computation

Crowdsourcing and Human Computation | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data | Scoop.it

"Crowdsourcing and human computation are emerging fields that sit squarely at the intersection of economics and computer science. They examine how people can be used to solve complex tasks that are currently beyond the capabilities of artificial intelligence algorithms. Online marketplaces like Mechanical Turk provide an infrastructure that allows micropayments to be given to people in return for completing human intelligence tasks. This opens up previously unthinkable possibilities like people being used as function calls in software. We will investigate how crowdsourcing can be used for computer science applications like machine learning, next-generation interfaces, and data mining. Beyond these computer science aspects, we will also delve into topics like prediction markets, how businesses can capitalize on collective intelligence, and the fundamental principles that underly democracy and other group decision-making processes."
