Internship Opportunity – Computer Science MS or Senior BS

Internship Opportunity!

The project is java based and covers the following:

· Focus on the MapDB Module
· Description for the initial MapDB-based work. More detailed deliverables defined based on your familiarity with java.
– This project involves processing large amount of tabular data using in-memory DB techniques (as opposed to traditional DBs that hold most of their data in media such as hard disks).
– The tasks involve loading huge amounts of data from Disk Based Files into in-memory data structures (built using MapDB Java library), filtering and processing in along the way to rationalize the size of the data kept in memory.
– After loading the data in-memory, a variety of rules are applied to the contents, using efficient MapDB functionality, to analyze this data (mining )
– The results are summarized and saved for future use for data complexity reduction actions (which data to keep, fix or delete)
– This work is posed as a contrast to traditional relational DB-based using (e.g., using Oracle tabular data).
