Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Big Data Zone (May 23 to May 30). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. The Imminent Fracture in Corporate Data Architecture: Fast + Big

Technologists are realizing that the whole “data economy” is transforming with a very important distinction between the two major ways in which we interact with data. The real win will come when we bridge these two forms of interaction and start to realize the value we all dream will come from all this data!

2. Markov Models and Hidden Markov Models

An introduction to Markov models and Hidden Markov models as mathematical abstractions, with some examples.

3. MapReduce Algorithms - Understanding Data Joins Part II

In this post the author demonstrates how to perform a map-side join when both data sets are large and can’t fit into memory. Map-side joins offer substantial gains in performance since we are avoiding the cost of sending data across the network.

4. Big Data Will Change Our Lives

A visually appealing and organized breakdown of big data's effect on our day-to-day lives from its definition to its management and how it will affect consumers.

5. Data science marketplaces

Some new websites are being established offering “market places” for data science. Two I’ve come across recently are Experfy and SnapAnalytx.

Hortonworks Sandbox is a personal, portable Apache Hadoop® environment that comes with dozens of interactive Hadoop and it's ecosystem tutorials and the most exciting developments from the latest HDP distribution, brought to you in partnership with Hortonworks.
