Prof. Sam Madden '99, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, spoke about big data, one of the hottest topics in computer science. At MIT, he recently started two "big data" initiatives: the Intel Science and Technology Center (ISTC) in Big Data, and BigData@CSAIL, and industry-sponsored consortium. In this talk, he gave a bit of background about what big data is, why industry is so excited about it, and his own perspective on the challenging research problems it brings up. He also described a couple of "big data" research projects, including BlinkDB, an approximate query processor built on Apache Hive, and DataHub, a new system helping teams of researchers collaborate on data sets. Prof. Madden answered many question throughout the talk and at the end.
