One Possible Hadoop World Morning Path

Categories: General

Hadoop World will kick off with keynote presentations by Mike Olson, Cloudera CEO, and Tim O’Reilly, Founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media. Both are engaging speakers that will fill our fresh morning minds with valuable insight and anticipation for what the rest of the day has in store. Simply taking a brief glimpse at the Hadoop World morning presentations, here  is one way you might traverse through the great content.

At 11am is a presentation by Tim Estes from Digital Reasoning on how the US Army is using Hadoop. This talk will discuss the type and scale of analysis that the new “Army Cloud” is doing using Synthesys—a new system for understanding and integrating structured and unstructured data—where Hadoop and CDH3 play a critical role.

Then at 11:35am, you can learn more about security in Hadoop by checking out Todd Lipcon’s and Aaron Myers’s presentation on making Hadoop security work within an existing IT environment. For anyone worried about the sensitivity of their data with Hadoop, this is a must-attend presentation.

Next you might sit-in on Lalit Kapoor’s presentation from Booz Allen Hamilton at 12:10pm on using Hadoop for indexing biometric data, high resolution images, voice/audio clips, and video clips. They do this using “Fuzzy Table,” created over Hadoop for content that cannot be easily indexed or ordered.

Again, this is only one possible route you could take in the morning. At each time slot there are five different presentations to choose from and they all sound insightful, educational, and so exciting that it may be difficult to make the decision as to what path to take.

    Is there any chance you’re going to record HW2010 talks on video? I’m going to attend the conference and it is really sad to realize that I won’t be able to see everything I want to.
