" Big data analytics beyond MapReduce"

Abstract: MapReduce was introduced by Google in 2004. Thanks to its functional programming abstraction and fault-tolerant distributed framework, MapReduce makes easy to write parallel programs. In 2004 MapReduce was mostly used for web indexing; however nowadays we are seeing different type of applications (relational, graphs or machine learning analytics for example) which does not fit well within the MapReduce paradigm. In this talk I will use some research projects I have been working on in the past years to (1) introduce Apache Spark and Apache REEF; (2) describe how relational, graphs and machine learning applications can be efficiently run at scale using such systems; and (3) illustrate system's pros, cons and design choices.

“Quick Develoment Big Data Analytics Tools"

Abstract: Implementing data processing logic in Data-Intensive Scalable Computing (DISC) systems is a difficult and time consuming effort. Today’s DISC systems offer many special purpose programming models and Domain Specific Languages, but very little tooling for debugging and profiling programs. As a result, programmers spend countless hours in stitching together subprograms written using different APIs, and performing trial and error debugging using log traces as evidences. To aid this effort, in the last years I have help in building a set of tools allowing developers to reduce the overall time to market for their Big Data Analytics. In particular, in this talk I will describe how relational, graphs and machine learning applications can be efficiently run at scale using the tooling I contributed to develop."

Bio: Matteo Interlandi is a Research Scientist in the Cloud and Information Services Lab (CISL) at Microsoft, working on scalable Machine Learning Systems. Before Microsoft, he was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the CS Department at the University of California, Los Angeles. Prior to joining UCLA, he was Research Associate at the Qatar Computing Research Institute and at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition. He obtained his PhD in Computer Science at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia under the supervision of Sonia Bergamaschi.
