LC | Big Data


Big data is all around us and it is a (potential) source for creating value. However, analysing big data is not yet part of every student’s toolkit. Therefore a Learning Community is started in which you can learn more about this topic. Aim is to experience in an informal, interactive way what is needed to extract all kinds of value from different big data sources. Advanced techniques and open source tooling will be used for getting insights. You will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience analysing big data yourself and to learn more about transforming big data into value. This community will be a mix of theory, discussion, exercises, assignments, collaboration, generating insights, guest speakers and company visits. The Learning Community can be characterised by strong commitment, a high level of social interaction, and pro-actively sharing of knowledge and insights.
