A Level Computer Science: Big Data
This module contains:
Compatible with the following examination boards
Big Data refers to large data sets that have grown to such an enormous size that traditional data processing tools can no longer store, manipulate or analyse it.
This term was coined by scientists in the early 2000s. Because of the enormous size of the data, multiple servers are required to store and analyse it.
This type of data cannot be handled by databases and hence, it is difficult to structure them and convert it to meaningful analysis.
In several applications, data is updated in real-time and the speed at which data changes is also a challenge to computer scientists.
This A Level Computer Science module introduces Big Data to your students, explaining:
- Introducing Big Data
- Examples of Big Data
- Fact-based modelling
- Problems with Big Data
- Functional programming for distributed processing
