Following is the introduction to Big Data slide deck I presented at Colombo Java meetup this month. You can find the slides from Introduction to Big Data.
Here I am taking a detailed look at the analysis, looking beyond the basic analytics and basic figures. We do analysis for three reasons.
- To know what happened (Analytics)
- To explain what happened (Models, theories)
- To predict what will happen (Neural networks, Numerical models )
Also the slides discuss much about existing predications like weather we are doing very well. It also includes a typical big data architecture and discusses different parts of that architecture.
Finally, the slides goes on to discuss Hadoop and CEP and provide some of the examples.
