To promote the use of advanced statistical methods within a Big Data environment - an essential requirement if correct conclusions are to be reached - it is necessary for statisticians and data scientists to utilise Big Data tools when supporting or performing data analysis in the modern world.

The objective of this one day course is to train statistically minded practitioners in the use of common Big Data tools, with an emphasis on the use of advanced statistical methods for analysis. The course will focus on the application of statistical methods in the processing platforms Hadoop and Spark and will highlight how these platforms can be effectively used to analyse data at scale.
