PhD Course on Data Analytics

The aim of the course is to introduce students to two important elements of data engineering technology that makes it possible to extract valuable knowledge from “Big Data”, namely distributed data processing using the MapReduce framework, and data analytics of large graphs. In each case, the course will first introduce fundamental theoretical and architectural concepts, and then present technology for using MapReduce and querying large graphs, respectively. For MapReduce, we present examples of algorithms that can be successfully parallelised and thus are able to take advantage of distributed data architectures, and we will suggest practical exercises using the Spark and Hadoop technology stack. Regarding graph analytics, we focus on community detection algorithms as an example, and we will usethe Neo4J graph DBMS along with the Graph Data Science library for practical exercises.

The course will be held online in the ICT class of Microsoft Teams by professor Paolo Missier and Ph.D. Luca Gagliardelli

Testimonies from our studentsRead all

Francesco Maria Puglisi
Associate Professor of Electronics, Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia
My current role: I perform research activity in the field of characterization and modeling of new memories and transistors, with a focus on noise, reliability, and variability. Recently, i am interested in new architectures for non-von Neumann computation. I also perform teaching activity in the fields of nanoelectronics, circuit design and electronic systems.
The expertise and competences acquired during my PhD experience were seminal for my whole carrer. Besides acquiring a significant amount of technical skills in my field of research, during my PhD i learned how to perform and lead complex research activities, how to present innovative results to an audience of professionals, and how to organize the structure of a research project in all its components.
I remember when i found out interesting but peculiar results while performing delicate noise measurements. I had to stay up all night to perform those measurements again, to exclude possible interefernces from the appliances that were typically on during daytime (computers, fans, heating...). Fortunately, results turned out to be the same as those i got in the morning but i remember it as a fun moment (perhaps because, at the end, results confirmed that i was not forced to perform noise measurements at night to get reliable results)!
