Big data analytics helps organizations harness their data and use it to identify new opportunities.That, in turn, leads to smarter business moves, more efficient operations, higher profits and happier customers.This workshop aims to give hands-on training sessions for the faculty members who in turn will train their students in Big data analytics tools.
Day 1: Dr.E.Poovammal Data Analytics using R
Day 2: Dr.R.Annie Uthra Data Analytics using Python
Day 3: Dr.S. Prabakaran Data Analytics using MATLAB Mr. Karthick Nanmaran Data Analytics using Tensorflow
Day 4: Dr.S.Geetha Massive Online Analysis
Day 5: Group Project by the participants with mentor's guidance
The Special Interest Group (SIG)-Data mining / Big data of Department of Computer Science and Engineering of SRM IST, Kattankulathur in association with IET (The Institution of Engineering and Technology) has organized a five days National Workshop on Big Data Analytics Tools - NWBAT-2018 from 06th February - 10th February 2018.
Dr.E.Poovammal, Professor, Department of CSE is the convener of the workshop. Mrs.P.Akilandeswari and Mr.Eliazer are the co-conveners of the workshop. The details of the workshop is available at the link: https://nwbat.github.io/
More than 40 IET professional members and 20 Non_IET have attended the workshop, sponsored by IET Chennai Network.
Exposure to advanced technologies and hands-on training on open source tools such as R, MATLAB, PYTHON, MOA, and E-views help the teaching community to guide the students on cutting-edge tools. Hence, this kind of workshops are organized with the support of SRM Institute of Science & Technology.
The very first session of the first day (06.02.17) on Introduction to Big Data was handled by, Dr.E.Poovammal, Professor, Department of CSE, SRMIST.
The second day(7.02.18) of the workshop began with the talk on Introduction to Python by Dr.R.Annie Uthra, Dept of CSE, SRMIST. She handled the hands-on session on Data Analytics Using Python in the afternoon session of the same day.
The forenoon session on 9.2.18( third day) was handled by Dr.S. Geetha, Professor, Dept of CSE, VIT. The speaker explored the challenges and techniques related to Data Stream Mining.Hands-on training session on Massive Online Analysis tool was given by Dr.S.Geetha in the afternoon session of the same day.
The fourth day(9.02.18) morning session was handled by Dr.S. Prabakaran, Professor, Dept of CSE, SRMIST. He gave a demonstration on Data Analytics using MATLAB.The afternoon session of the fourth day(9.2.18) was handled by Mr.Karthick Nanmaran, Dept of CSE, SRMIST on the topic Data Analytics using Tensortflow.
On the last day of the workshop, the participants were instructed to form groups with a minimum of 3 and maximum of 5 members. They were asked to do analysis on any dataset using any of the tools learned in the workshop. Totally 12 teams were formed. SIG group members mentored them.The team members were asked to give demonstration in the afternoon session. The demonstration was evaluated by Dr.S.S.Sridhar, IET- CLN Chairman and Dr.E.Poovammal, the Convener of NWBAT’18 Workshop. All the participants were honored with participation certificate. Two teams were awarded with appreciation certificates for their project work. Finally, the NWBAT workshop was concluded at 5 pm on 10th February 2018.
