Hi Jeremy Kubica,

I've a big interest into the use of BigData technologies to analyze and identify threats in our society and I wanted to know if this is also a subject of this book?

For example you could use a Big Data system to stock all the communication (social media, phone, sms, whatsapp,...) and the position of the inhabitants of a country with their geocoordinate in order to build a relation tree between the people and identify potential terrorists.

Or just putting all the crimes, when they happened (position, times, ...) and generate statistics about where there's a high crime risiko and position the police patrol in your town according to those statistics.

Actually the possibilities are almost infinite.

Cheers and wish you a nice day,

BigData analytics is not a major theme of the book. The book primarily covers introductory algorithms and data structures.
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
