As your data sets grow in both size and complexity, it becomes more and more difficult to work with them, particularly when the data does not fit in memory. MATLAB provides a single, high-performance environment for working with big data that makes it easy, convenient, and scalable to analyze and process big data.

In this webinar, you will learn strategies and techniques for handling large amounts of data in MATLAB. New big data capabilities in MATLAB R2016b will be highlighted, including tall arrays. Using tall arrays, there's no need to learn big data programming or out-of-memory techniques -- simply use the same code and syntax you're already used to.

Topics covered include:

  • Accessing data in large text files, databases, or from the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS)
  • Leveraging tall arrays to analyze and process data that does not fit in memory
  • Using Parallel Computing Toolbox for increased performance
  • Running on compute clusters, Hadoop, or Spark

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
