Want to learn more about Big Data? MIT is taking on the buzzy topic in an online course designed for tech professionals. The course, titled Tackling the Challenges of Big Data, runs from March 4 to April 1 and costs $495. MIT Professional Education is behind the training. The Big Data course marks the first offering in the school’s new lineup of Online X professional programs, which will be delivered via the Open edX platform (an open-source online learning initiative backed by Harvard, MIT, Stanford and others). Topics covered will include data collection (from smartphones, sensors, the Web); data storage and processing (including scalable relational databases, Hadoop, Spark); analytics (machine learning, data compression, efficient algorithms); visualization; and a range of applications, MIT says.
