Description:Algorithms, Machines and People Lab
... resource management and debuggers to find and correct programming errors We are developing datacenter scale implementations of these components so that using a datacenter for analytics becomes as easy as using a computer today People will play a key role in data intensive applications not simply as passive consumers of results but as active providers and gatherers of data and to solve ML hard problems that algorithms on their own cannot solve With crowdsourcing people can be viewed as highly valuable but unreliable and unpredictable resources in terms of both latency and answer quality They must be incentivized appropriately to provide quality answers despite varying expertise diligence and even malicious behavior The AMPLab is addressing these issues in all phases of the analytics lifecycle Events AMPLab Summer Retreat May 18 20 2015 Chaminade Santa Cruz CA By Invitation Only More Info Dissertation Talk Mosharaf Chowdhury AMPLab Mending The Application Network Gap in Big Data Analtyics Friday 5 15 9am 465 Soda More Info Dissertation Talk Gene Pang AMPLab Scalable Transactions for Scalable Distributed Databases W 5 13 noon 405 Soda More Info More Events Featured Project Tachyon A Reliable Memory Centric Storage for Big Data Analytics Memory is the key to fast Big Data processing This has been realized by many and frameworks such as Spark and Shark already leverage memory performance As data sets continue to grow storage is increasingly becoming a critical bottleneck in many workloads To address this need we have developed Tachyon a memory centric fault tolerant distributed file system which enables reliable file sharing at memory speed across cluster frameworks such as Spark and MapReduce The result of over two years of research Tachyon achieves memory speed and fault tolerance by using memory aggressively and leveraging lineage information Tachyon caches working set files in memory...
