With the exponential growth of data comes an ever-increasing need to process and analyze so-called Big Data. High Performance Data Mining and Big Data Analytics provides a comprehensive view of the recent trend toward high performance computing architectures and its natural connection to analytics and data mining. You'll find coverage of topics including: big data, high performance computing for analytics, massively parallel processing (MPP) databases, in-memory analytics, implementation of machine learning algorithms for big data platforms, text analytics, analytics environments, the analytics lifecycle, general applications, as well as a variety of cases.
Filled with case studies, High Performance Data Mining and Big Data Analytics provides a thorough grounding for optimally putting data mining and big data analytics to work for your organization.
