Taller 22 El mundo está cambiando: todo sobre Big Data
El mundo está cambiando y el nuevo desafío es extraer información enterrada entre inmensos volúmenes de datos. Solo aquellos que inviertan en el análisis de la información y en conocer mejor a la audiencia podrán aprovechar el valor real de esta era. En este momento hay numerosas herramientas que permiten estructurar fácilmente datos y analizarlos para obtener información sobre un tema particular. Compañías como Google, Facebook, Linkedin y Twitter están cambiando sus tradicionales bases de datos por un sistema más flexible y escalable, que les permite procesar datos en miles de servidores. Este sistema, denominado Distributed Data Analysis, es uno de los paradigmas más nuevos para la computación del presente. Inicialmente fue introducido por papers publicados por Google, como Google File Systems y MapReduce.
Durante esta sesion hablaremos del espacio que ocupa este fenomeno llamado BigData en la sociedad, como la afecta, ayuda y transforma. Se propondrá un ejercicio práctico para dar cuenta de su potencial sobre Twitter para extraer conclusiones sobre eventos recientes como las Olimpiadas, la Líga de Campeones y el hundimiento del Titanic, entre otros.

Workshop 22 The world is changing: Everything you want to know about Big Data
As the world changes, we face the challenge of extracting information buried in huge volumes of data. Only those who invest in analyzing information and in getting to know their audience will take advantage of the value that is available in this era. Currently there are many tools on the market that allow users to easily structure and analyze raw data to obtain fresh information on a particular topic. Companies like Google, Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter are changing their traditional databases to be more flexible and scalable systems, which allow the processing of data on thousands of servers. This system, called Distributed Data Analysis, is one of the newest paradigms in computing. Initially it was introduced via white papers released by Google, like Google File Systems and MapReduce. During this session we will talk about the Big Data phenomenon in society, and how it affects, transforms and helps. We will conduct a practical exercise to discover the potential of social networks like Twitter to extract conclusions about recent events like the Olympics, Champions League and sinking of the Titanic, among others.
