This tutorial is aimed at R users who want to use Hadoop to work on big data and Hadoop users who want to do sophisticated analytics. The presenters introduce you to R, Hadoop, and the RHadoop project. They cover three R packages for Hadoop and the mapreduce model and present numerous examples of incremental complexity including the combination of rmr and RevoscaleR to solve modeling problems.
