Scalability and Realtime for Data Warehouses and BigData (Computer Science Texts) (Volume 1) Paperback – July 14, 2015 by Pedro Nuno Furtado (Author)

Summary

Pedro Furtado is Professor at University of Coimbra UC, Portugal, where he teaches courses in both Computer and Biomedical Engineering. He has more than 25 years experience in both teaching, doing research and supervising industry projects. He has a broad interest in computer science subjects, with the main focus being on performance and scalability qualities of systems, and more recently also on image recognition for medical applications. Pedro did a lot of research in data warehousing and analytics, bigdata, data mining, and image recognition for medical applications. He also worked in assistive technologies, applying image recognition and mobile technologies to healthcare scenarios. Pedro has about 200 papers published in international conferences and journals, books published and several research collaborations with both industry and academia. In the last years, Pedro has spent time as visiting scholar in some of the most prestigious universities in the world, and collaborating with non-profit institutions. Besides a PhD in Computer Engineering from U. Coimbra (UC) (2000), Pedro Furtado also holds an MBA from Universidade Catolica Portuguesa (UCP) (2004).

Most recent: I was keynote speaker in the Sixth European Business Intelligence & Big Data Summer School (eBISS 2016): "Big Data Warehouses and Analytics: About Scalability and Realtime", where I talked about scalability and realtime architectures and Spark, not only for traditional analytics, also for machine learning with Spark-Mlib
