These courses provide a baseline of knowledge for all program participants through online videos and interactive exercises that cover topics in statistics, programming and data set review.
Here’s a sample agenda of an Applied Big Data Program that can be held at Stanford University (or at your organization’s location).
|Monday||Basic Statistical Techniques||Lunch||Statistical Learning I|
|Tuesday||Statistical Learning II||Lunch||Analytics and Optimization: Theory and Practice: Panel Discussion|
|Wednesday||Parallelization Hadoop Ecosystem||Lunch||Big Data Lab: Hands on Practice of Tools|
|Thursday||Parallelization: SAP on Dynamic Databases, Multithreading||Lunch||Site visit: How are Silicon Valley companies using Big Data?|
|Friday||Visualization Tools||Lunch||Wrap Up and Project Unveiling|
Using lessons learned at the workshop, participants will be asked to apply big data tools and analytic techniques within their own company and present the results at a live virtual webinar. Stanford faculty members will provide them with feedback and suggestions.
