ABSTRACT:

Big Data has been one of the most popular IT buzzwords of the decade. At this seminar, we will define what Big Data is, and what challenges industry and research community face in dealing with Big Data. We will talk about common approaches to analyzing and processing extremely large datasets, and identify suitable Big Data tools for real-world challenges.

As time and interest allows, Neural Networks, and how they can be used either in hybrid with HMM-GMM models will also be covered.
