Course Information

Big data are everywhere: examples include the World Wide Web, social network, mobile call network, biological network, and many more. Mining big data helps us find userful patterns and anomalies which lead to high impact applications including fraud detection, recommendation system, cyber security, etc.
The course covers advanced algorithms for mining and managing big data. Topics include MapReduce/Hadoop, approximation, graph compression, power laws, community detection, graph structure analysis, triangle counting, link analysis, spectral graph analysis, tensor analysis, and anomaly detection.
