DATE :  Tuesday, April 23, 2013   ABSTRACT : 
During this talk we will point to some of the technologies involved in “Big Data,” which is more than storing large amounts of data. In order to leverage the large data, new automated methods are being deployed. The old paradigm of data mining for structured data is morphing into text mining for unstructured data. With the focus shifting from infrastructure to managing the content and analyzing and repurposing information, this information is increasingly machine generated by logging events such as IP traffic logs, financial transactions, oil field sensors, transportation systems sensors, and billions of other items per day. Companies ranging from Google and Yahoo! to companies like Bloomberg to Amazon and Wal-Mart are utilizing this data.
