  3. 3. Introduction From the Class of 2011 - Won the Lead College Project Competition for Best CS Project in Shivaji Uni. Currently Part in the BigData team of BI and Analytics Unit at Persistent Systems* Worked on Search Engines, Recommendation Engines, ETL tools, Clustering and User Behavior Analytics Interested in Machine Learning, Data Mining and Building Intelligent Systems. Currently working with Hadoop, Mahout, NoSQL DBs like MongoDB 3 * This presentation is in no way associated to Persistent Systems Ltd. or its affiliates and is an original work only used for private purposes.Saturday 28 July 2012
  4. 4. Or Build your Own !!! :) Which of you want to be a part of one of these companies? 4Saturday 28 July 2012
  5. 5. Why the Project? To get the glimpse of the industry :) To get hands dirty with Software Engineering and Research first time in your life. Helps in Projects in future. Helps to gain in depth knowledge of the subject matter, useful for future To understand the process of building a large-scale project for enterprise Only chance in your Engineering life to in an upcoming or a niche technology or field of Research 5Saturday 28 July 2012
  6. 6. What? Technology on the Rise in the field of CS and IT Data Machine Learning, BigData, Hadoop and NoSQL DBs Cloud Amazon, Mobile Android, iOS, Windows Mobile OS Collaboration Liferay, Jasper, Sharepoint 6Saturday 28 July 2012
  7. 7. Where to get the Idea ??? Field of Interests Research Papers Industrial Applications Problems that you face everyday Hot Trends to capture 7Saturday 28 July 2012
  8. 8. Knowledge Management System on Cloud Searching for a document Learn how to version Documents. Profiles for Users Authentication for Users Technologies Hadoop/HBase, Solr, REST, Ajax, HTML 5, JQuery, ... Have a look at Sharepoint, Quad, Jasper 8Saturday 28 July 2012
  9. 9. Algorithms as a Service Lot of Data but no place to get meaning out of it. Give the Service of Uploading dataset of choice. Run Algorithms of this data Machine Learning Data Mining Analytics eg: 9Saturday 28 July 2012
  10. 10. Clustering Algorithms Lot of Applications Fraud Detection,Data Discovery NLP, Recommendation Engines Doing Clustering for Text and Scientific data. Building a complete end-to-end application for Clustering Algorithms. Our Project was on K-Means and the Study of its Variations. Have a look at 10Saturday 28 July 2012
  11. 11. Hadoop + GA Implement a library/framework to support Genetic Algorithms on Hadoop Map-Reduce. Hadoop becoming the platform for BigData. This Project could lead to an OpenSource Contribution. My Personal Recommendation. :) Have a look at http:// 11Saturday 28 July 2012
  12. 12. Build your own DB !!! A layer over Hadoop for Large Data Storage (in TBs) HBase with Transactional Support. Working with Simpler NoSQL DBs on top of Hadoop. eg. MongoDB, OrientDB, Redis. Similar to BlinkDB’s Attempts. See more at 12Saturday 28 July 2012
  13. 13. Projects with me. Projects related to Machine Learning (a subset of AI) Cutting Edge technologies - MapReduce algorithms, Hadoop, Mahout, Clustering Algorithms. Chance to show skills to industry experts. Real world Project experience and relevant skillset added. 13Saturday 28 July 2012
  14. 14. ok, got a great idea to work on, Now what? Use the iterative-D5 method for Project Discuss - a lot. Divide roles Front End, Back End, Documentation, Deployment, Scrums, Sprints Develop - with Standards Debug - Test + Solve Deploy - Get it Running. 14Saturday 28 July 2012
  15. 15. Did I hear Prizes? Winning Prizes is Always fun. Name + Fame $$$ Many chances with same project Get to see other great minds too in your field. 15Saturday 28 July 2012
