Big Data Processing ()
The module syllabus adopts a hands-on programming stance. In addition it focuses on algorithms and architectures to familiarise students with message-passing systems ((MPI) as adopted by industry. Parallel computing, which implies the simultaneous execution of several processes for solving a single problem, is a mainstream subject with wide ranging implications for computer architecture, algorithms design and programming. The UK has been at the forefront of this technology through its involvement in the development of several innovative architectures. Queen Mary has been involved with Parallel Computing for more than a decade. In this module, students will be introduced to parallel computing and will gain firsthand experience in relevant techniques.
Data Analytics (Undergraduate)
This module focuses on the range of approaches, methodologies, techniques and tools for data analysis, and the use of data analysis findings to inform decision-making in an industrial / business context.
Data Analytics (Postgraduate)
This module focuses on the range of approaches, methodologies, techniques and tools for data analysis, and the use of data analysis findings to inform decision-making in an industrial / business context. It exposes students to a range of industry-standard statistical and data analysis techniques and tools, and fosters awareness of the challenges associated with working with large datasets. The module also covers topics related to the legal, social, ethical and professional issues associated with data storage and analysis. Students will undertake practical work including empirical data analysis and summarisation / presentation of the results to a range of relevant stakeholders.
