ECE 69500 - Big Data for Reliability and Security
Lecture Hours: 1 Credits: 1
Areas of Specialization:
- Communications, Networking, Signal & Image Processing
On-campus and online
Requisites by Topic:
Python programming; basic knowledge of probability and statistics.
This course briefly covers the theoretical aspects of big data for reliability and security and stresses the practical systems aspects of such techniques. There are two challenge programming problems based on large real-world datasets that we have collected and curated.
- Formulate the reliability and the security requirements of a production system.
- Understand and develop big data techniques for improving reliability and security of computing systems.
- Construct software artifacts to instantiate the techniques for real-world datasets and under realistic conditions.
