Digi-Key Electronics’ Internet of Things (IoT) Resource Center Inspires the Future: Read More

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Big Data Zone (Mar. 21 to Mar. 27). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Java 8 Will Revolutionize Database Access

Java 8 is finally here! After years of waiting, Java programmers will finally get support for functional programming in Java.

2. Using CustomScoreQuery For Custom Solr/Lucene Scoring

Frequently you’ll find that existing Lucene queries will do fine with matching but you’d like to take control of just the scoring/ordering. That’s what CustomScoreQuery gives you – the ability to wrap another Lucene Query and rescore it.

3. Big Data with Apache Accumulo Preserving Security with Open Source

Apache Accumulo is a system built for doing random i/o with peta bytes of data. Distributing the computation to the data with cell level security is where Accumulo really shines.

4. Tracking Soccer Game Play with Big Data Streaming, Internet of Things, and Complex Event Processing

Teams gain a competitive edge by analyzing Big Data streams. By using complex event processing and MapReduce based technologies, teams can improve performance. Sensors placed in shoes, goal mitts, and soccer balls streamed spatial, vector, and temporal information toward Big Data stream receivers.

5. Seasonal or Periodic Time Series

This might explain why, in R, when we ask for an autoregressive process or order P, then we get a model with P parameters to estimate, and even if some are not significant, we usually keep them for the forecast.
