The goal of bigdata@csail is to identify and develop the technologies needed to solve the next generation data challenges which require the ability to scale well beyond what today's computing platforms, algorithms, and methods can provide. We want to enable people to truly leverage Big Data by developing platforms that are reusable, scalable and easy to deploy across multiple application domains.
Our approach includes two key aspects. First, we will collaborate closely with industry to provide real-world applications and drive impact. Second, we view the Big Data problem as fundamentally multi-disciplinary. Our team includes faculty and researchers across many related technology areas, including algorithms, architecture, data management, machine learning, privacy and security, user interfaces, and visualization, as well as domain experts in finance, medical, smart infrastructure, education and science.
