Data Intensive Summer School
June 30 – July 2, 2014
11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST

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.)
