CS 677 Big Data


CS 677 is focused on building and leveraging distributed systems to analyze large datasets. The course will consist of large programming assignments and you will also be required to submit written reports on assigned readings from the literature.

All three projects are meant to be done individually. Each project will include a detailed specification document with a description of the problem, breakdown of points, permitted libraries, etc. You are free to discuss the projects with your classmates, but sharing code or pseudocode is not acceptable.

Reminder: All assignments are due at 11:59pm on the date posted on Canvas. Check out the grading policies for more information.
