Title: An Introduction to Hadoop and its Use on a Smaller Scale
Abstract: In the session, we will introduce Hadoop and explain its component parts and how Hadoop components interact act with the processing of large sets of data.
From this foundation the presentation will show how this architecture has been a benefit to the development of artificial intelligence. This new wave of development of artificial intelligence has been pushing the boundaries of the application of artificial intelligence to solve more commonplace problems by giving examples and discussing the success.
We will also discuss how the power of Hadoop can be used not only for storage and analysis of very large data sets but can also be applied to smaller scale processing needs and how to architect a Hadoop system that functions at the smaller scales of research.
