The course consists of a first part of lectures describing advanced algorithms and data structures (3 CFU), and a laboratory in the second part (3 CFU) in which the students will deploy these techniques to develop a software project. The students will select their projects among a set of proposals by major IT companies which are challenging from an algorithmic perspective. These companies will also contribute to identify/construct significant datasets that will help in testing the proposed algorithmic solutions.
The course will provide the opportunity of: * facing with difficult algorithmic problems of practical interest involving big data; * evaluating the impact of efficient algorithmic solutions in the design of software managing big data; * implementing advanced software by using powerful and sophisticated libraries; * getting in touch with some companies for internships, scholarships, or thesis proposals.
