Data Intensive Summer School
July 8 – 10, 2013

The Data Intensive Summer School focuses on the skills needed to manage, process and
gain insight from large amounts of data. It is targeted at researchers from the physical,
biological, economic and social sciences that are beginning to drown in data. We will cover
the nuts and bolts of data intensive computing, common tools and software, predictive
analytics algorithms, data management and visualization. Given the
short duration of the summer school, the emphasis will be on providing a solid foundation
that the attendees can use as a starting point for advanced topics of particular relevance to
their work.

Prerequisites

  • Experience working in a Linux environment
  • Familiarity with relational data base model
  • Examples and assignments will most likely use R, MATLAB and Weka.
  • We do not require experience in these languages or tools, but you should already have an understanding of basic programming concepts (loops, conditionals, functions, arrays, variables, scoping, etc.)

Organizer

  • Robert Sinkovits, San Diego Supercomputer Center
