Spring 2018 not offered
Many of you have heard of studies that analyzed Twitter messages and predicted some phenomena--spread of flu in New York, consumer confidence index, and so on. Behind the success of these studies are the systems for data storage and retrieval. A regular user can access only the latest nine days of tweets. Any study that aspires to analyze longer periods has to deal with the issues of storing the observations and retrieving them later for analysis. The goal of this course is to show you how to do that--how to connect to various types of databases and how to retrieve and update your data. We will start with relational databases; learn SQL, the language used to query and update the data; and explore the latest developments in the database field--Hadoop and MapReduce.
