What's the best solution to the looming shortage of data scientists, those high priests of analytics who glean meaning from big data?
One option is to build big data applications that automate many data scientist tasks, thereby enabling less technical business workers to make data-driven decisions without first consulting the resident data guru.
Big data and log filesSplunk's great success in providing the tools for a sysadmin to delve into previously inaccessible log files has opened up the market for deeper analysis on data in log files.Volume and Variety in log files...
Time again to take a look at our NoSQL LinkedIn Skills Index, based on the number of LinkedIn member profiles mentioning each of the NoSQL projects. This is the first update since we rebooted the analysis in September to account for more products and refine our search terms
a good, simple, and short description of three well-known open source message queues - ActiveMQ, RabbitMQ, and ZeroMQ. The descriptions are especially useful because they draw useful comparisons between the three brokers. They were written in 09' but edited late last year.
This document is a design and coding guide for developing high performance OpenCL applications for the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. It will take you from the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor architecture and microarchitecture, through the key OpenCL constructs and show you how to use them efficiently to best utilize the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor HW. Since exploiting HW parallelism is essential for performance applications, we will show you how to improve the parallelism of your OpenCL application on Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. With this knowledge, you will be ready to design and program your application to perform best on Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor through OpenCL.
Big Data ends where it begins — with people — when those numbers, generated by all of us, improve all our lives. The Human Face of Big Data tells the story of that circle, and your role in it. Big data is detecting earthquakes in tsunami-prone Japan, keeping traffic flowing on America's highways, foiling counterfeit pharmaceuticals, battling mosquitoes from outer space, and providing citizens in the developing world with much-needed identity documents. Explore examples and uncover all the ways Big Data is impacting our world.
Apache Lucene is a high-performance, full-featured text search engine library written entirely in Java. It is a technology suitable for nearly any application that requires full-text search, especially cross-platform.
Many of my software engineer friends ask me about learning data science. There are many articles on this subject from renowned data scientists (Dataspora, Gigaom, Quora, Hilary Mason). This post captures my journey (a software engin...
As far as “hot topics” in insurance go, predictive modeling has been one of the dominating topics over the past decade. This set of analytical tools has transformed the way that many actuaries work and has ushered in a new era of rating products. Predictive modeling will continue to shape the industry and direct future analytical developments. A basic understanding of this increasingly important specialty is essential for all actuaries—even those currently practicing in non-pricing roles.
This document contains the release notes for the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure, release 3.2. Here we describe the status of LLVM, including major improvements from the previous release, improvements in various sub-projects of LLVM, and some of the current users of the code. All LLVM releases may be downloaded from the LLVM releases web site.
With all the traffic congestion and vehicle-related pollution up on the rise, electric powered and other hybrid green-fueled mode of transportation seems to be a happy work around. Joining the ranks is the JAC<, a compact, foldable electric powered scooter. Ideal for urban distances and loaded with high-tech features, this environmentally friendly, modern personal transporter is easy to fold and to bring along anywhere.
