3 Credits
This course provides a broad introduction to the exploration and management of large datasets being generated and used in the modern world. First, practical techniques used in exploratory data analysis and mining are introduced; topics include data preparation, visualization, statistics for understanding data, and grouping and prediction techniques. Second, approaches used to store, retrieve, and manage data in the real world are presented; topics include traditional database systems, query languages, and data integrity and quality. Case studies will examine issues in data capture, organization, storage, retrieval, visualization, and analysis in diverse settings such as urban crime, drug research, census data, social networking, and space exploration. Big data exploration and management projects, a term paper and a presentation are required. Sufficient background in database systems and statistics is recommended.
CSCI-621
3 Credits
This course provides a broad introduction to database management systems including data modeling, the relational model, and SQL. Database system implementation issues are covered next, where the focus is on data structures and algorithms used to implement database management systems. Topics include physical data organizations, indexing and hashing, query processing and optimization, database recovery techniques, transaction management, concurrency control, and database performance evaluation. Current research topics in database system implementation are also explored. Programming projects, a term paper, and presentations will be required.
CSCI-724
3 Credits
This course introduces fundamental concepts of Web services and the Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) paradigm, and reviews seminal work, current research, and modern practices in these areas. Topics in Web Services include XML; reference model (WSDL, UDDI, SOAP); service coordination and composition; and service security and privacy. Big data analytics in SOC will also be covered, such as large scale service data retrieval and storage, service clustering and classification, service recommendation, and service discovery. Students will apply the concepts learned in the class through programming assignments and a comprehensive term project.
