The term ‘Big Data’ covers the explosion of high frequency digital data in terms of quantity, diversity and heterogeneity. Big Data is not just about the volume of data but also includes velocity, veracity, variety and value. The main focus of the workshop would be to understand the various aspects of Big Data - Architecture and Models, Applications, Algorithms and Open Source Tools, Research challenges in mining, machine learning, information retrieval, natural language processing and security. Hands on sessions will be conducted for some of the tools.

Major Topics Include:

  • Hadoop
  • Machine Learning
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Information Retrieval
  • R programming


Faculty members, Research Scholars and M.Tech. & B.Tech. students from recognized institutions and universities.


Accommodation can be arranged on request at NITK Guest House (if available)/Hostels/Hotels on payment basis.
