Zach Lamberty to Teach Advanced Mathematical and Statistical Computing at Georgetown University
Data Scientist Zach Lamberty designed and will teach a new graduate course Advanced Mathematical and Statistical Computing for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Georgetown University. The goals for this hands-on course are to learn about advanced computational tools and methods utilized in the data science field, including how to use and administer cloud computing resources, useful utilities in the Linux environment, and the AWS suite of cloud services. Among the AWS services the course will focus on general use services (e.g. EC2, S3), the Hadoop distributed computing ecosystem, the map reduce framework, and the application of these concepts to working with and understanding large datasets.
