AMPLab Overview

We make sense of the world around us by turning data into information. For years, research in fields such as machine learning (ML), data mining, databases, information retrieval, natural language processing, and speech recognition have steadily improved their techniques for revealing the information lying within otherwise opaque datasets. But computer science is now on the verge of a new era in data analysis because of several recent developments, including: the rise of the warehouse-scale computer (WSC), the massive explosion in online data, the increasing diversity and time-sensitivity of queries, and the advent of crowdsourcing. Together these trends — often referred to collectively as Big Data — have the potential for ushering in a new era in data analysis, but to realize this opportunity requires us to confront several significant scientific challenges:

  • WSCs and cloud computing have made the world’s largest computing facilities generally available. However, the programming environments developed for these WSCs are only effective on a narrow range of tasks. Supporting the more varied demands of general data analysis will require a new software infrastructure for WSCs incorporating flexible programming abstractions specifically tailored to the highly parallel datacenter computing environment.
  • Massive amounts of new online data provide significantly more raw material for data analysis. However, this data comes from diverse sources with no common schema and is of variable quality. We need radically new data management techniques to tame these huge, heterogeneous and highly imperfect datasets.
  • The great diversity of data sources will enable a far greater range of queries than those supported by traditional data analysis systems, and the ever-increasing size of the datasets means that traditional data-analytics algorithms will require more computational resources and incur higher delays. We thus need far more flexible, scalable, and tunable analysis algorithms so that, over a wide range of queries, explicit tradeoffs can be made between delay, cost, and quality-of-answer.
  • Crowdsourcing allows, for the first time, large-scale and on-demand invocation of human input. For problems that are “ML-hard” (i.e., are difficult for traditional machine learning and other automated tools), crowdsourcing provides an attractive alternative. To be widely useful, however, these crowdsourcing methods must be tightly integrated within more general data analytics frameworks.

Meeting these challenges will require an entirely new approach that transcends and reshapes disciplinary boundaries.   The AMPLab is a five-year collaborative effort at UC Berkeley, involving students, researchers and faculty from a wide swath of computer science and data-intensive application domains to address the Big Data analytics problem.   AMP stands for “Algorithms, Machines, and People”.  AMPLab envisions a world where massive data, cloud computing, communication and people resources can be continually, flexibly and dynamically be brought to bear on a range of hard problems by people connected to the cloud via devices of increasing power and sophistication.

Along with traditional research funding agencies, AMPLab is sponsored by, and works with many of the world’s leading technology companies and innovative start-ups.  These companies participate in twice-yearly multi-day research retreats, provide advice and real-world insight, and interact closely with researchers on projects of mutual interest throughout the research process.  AMPLab researchers (including faculty) share a open-plan collaborative research space that is designed to encourage interactions across the various areas of expertise in the lab.

We launched the AMPLab on 2/17/11 as part of the BEARS 2011 Annual Research Symposium.  Professor Ion Stoica gave a presentation on the AMPLab research agenda (see below).

In the AMPLab, collaboration with our Founding Sponsors, Sponsors and affiliates is important to our research.  For example, watch this video for information about our work with Amazon web services:

Here is a video from the latest Spark Summit (2014) in which our director, Mike Franklin, gives an update about the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack:


AMP Lab – UC Berkeley

BDAS, the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack, is an open source software stack that integrates software components being built by the AMPLab to make sense of Big Data.

BDAS consists of the components shown below. Components shown in Blue or Green are available for download now. Click on a title to go that project’s homepage.

In addition to BDAS, the AMPLab has released additional software components useful for processing data:

  • AMPCrowd: A RESTful web service for sending tasks to human workers on crowd platforms like Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. Used by the SampleClean project for context-heavy data cleaning tasks.


BDAS will continue to evolve over the life of the AMPLab project, as existing components evolve and mature and new ones are added.


  • Software project Meetups – Help organize monthly developer meetups around BDAS components. Check out the Spark/Shark meetup group, the Mesos meetup group, and the Alluxio meetup group
  • AMP Camp “Big Data Bootcamp” – Two days packed full of software system intros, demos and hands-on exercises. Aims to bring practitioners with no prior experience up to speed and writing real code with real advanced algorithms.
  • Support – Unlike many research software prototypes that never see production use, we support BDAS software components by actively monitoring and responding on developer and user mailing lists.

Why I Bought the Dip in Berkeley Lights $BLI

Academy of Medicine and Public Service

Lead Teachers: Claudia Gonzalez and John Tobias

The Academy of Medicine and Public service is a health pathway preparing students for life through engaging curriculum and real world experiences. We are a community of learners working together as a strong core team of teachers, students and parents to ensure the success of all of our students.

Our college curriculum meets and exceeds UC requirements including:

• Three years of history and English include an additional AP English course in both junior and senior year for students who want to take on the challenge of the AP exams.
• Electives include sports medicine, fire science, and psychology.
• We have three sciences through junior year: forensics, chemistry, and biological health with an emphasis on anatomy. Seniors take honors anatomy, AP environmental science, or physics.
• Three-years of math culminate in senior AP statistics and calculus. All juniors have an internship to explore careers and life skills, and our seniors take a capstone class, Applied Medical English including field work, a college level thesis paper, and articulation to a college course in medical terminology.

Our goal is to prepare students for college and careers, and to empower them to become leaders in their community and agents of change.

Campus Conversation: Dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley

The clit bump was just like that. The lips parted and swelled a little. I turned my hair over to the left with my hand so that I wouldnt interfere and started kissing her belly.

Similar news:

There is a reason for that, he frowned. - Perhaps we really exist on an equal footing. The girl was grinning with the corner of her lips. There is only one way to check, - he remembered the chain of reasoning that led him to the experiment. The girl grunted, pretended not to be interested.
