CS 345S: Data-intensive Systems for the Next 1000x

The last decade saw enormous shifts in the design of large-scale data-intensive systems due to the rise of Internet services, cloud computing, and Big Data processing. Where will we see the next 1000x increases in scale and data volume, and how should data-intensive systems accordingly evolve? This course will critically examine a range of trends, including the Internet of Things, drones, smart cities, and emerging hardware capabilities, through the lens of software systems research and design. Students will perform a comparative analysis by reading and discussing cutting-edge research while performing their own original research. Prerequisites: Strong background in software systems, especially databases ( CS 245) and distributed systems ( CS 244B), and/or machine learning ( CS 229). Undergraduates who have completed CS 245 are strongly encouraged to attend.

CS 349D: Cloud Computing Technology

The largest change in the computer industry over the past five years has arguably been the emergence of cloud computing: organizations are increasingly moving their workloads to managed public clouds and using new, global-scale services that were simply not possible in private datacenters. However, both building and using cloud systems remains a black art with many difficult research challenges. This research seminar will cover industry and academic work on cloud computing and survey challenges including programming interfaces, cloud native applications, resource management, pricing, availability and reliability, privacy and security. Students will also propose and develop an original research project.n nPrerequisites: For graduate students, background in computer systems ( CS 240, 244, 244B or 245) is strongly recommended. Undergrads will need instructor's approval.

ENGR 245: The Lean LaunchPad: Getting Your Lean Startup Off the Ground

Apply the Lean Startup principles including the Business Model Canvas, Customer Development, and Agile Engineering to prototype, test, and iterate on your idea while discovering if you have a profitable business model. This is the class adopted by the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health as the Innovation Corps. Team applications required in December. Proposals can be software, hardware, or service of any kind. Projects are experiential and require incrementally building the product while talking to 10-15 customers/partners each week. See course website http://leanlaunchpad.stanford.edu/. Prerequisite: Interest in and passion for exploring whether your technology idea can become a real company. Limited enrollment.
Terms: Win | Units: 3-4 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

ME 245: From Maps to Meaning

One of the oldest visual tools created by humans to make sense of the complexities of our world, maps are unique in their ability to synthesize data, convey meaning through spatial logic, and deliver information at high resolution. They are also incredible tools for communication, data sorting and insight finding.n n This is an intensive, hands-on course that uses mapping techniques to navigate the intersection of data and design. Students will tackle three main projects and several shorter assignments over 10 weeks. Perfect attendance and completion of projects is absolutely mandatory. You will:n -collect, sort and organize quantitative and qualitative datan -create maps to synthesize complex informationn -use mapping as a tool to work on design problemsn -explore biases in map-makingn -create design interventions based on data and mapsn n While no specific prior experience is necessary, this class is for you if you are comfortable with the ambiguity of learning new skills on and off the computer, if you geek out about design and data, and if you are not intimidated by the idea of creating analog and digital maps. Admission by application. See dschool.stanford.edu/classes for more information.

MS&E 245A: Investment Science

Basic concepts of modern quantitative finance and investments. Focus is on the financial theory and empirical evidence that are useful for investment decisions. Topics: basic interest rates; evaluating investments: present value and internal rate of return; fixed-income markets: bonds, yield, duration, portfolio immunization; term structure of interest rates; measuring risk: volatility and value at risk; designing optimal portfolios; risk-return tradeoff: capital asset pricing model and extensions. No prior knowledge of finance is required. Concepts are applied in a stock market simulation with real data. Prerequisite: basic preparation in probability, statistics, and optimization.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3-4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
