HPCC is the big data analysis tool from LexisNexis. They have proprietary add-ons as well. They've got a meetup and have spoken at local users' groups. I don't see any upcoming meetups, but keep an eye on them.

This was the note from Trish, their program manager:

Hello, I am the Program Manager for the HPCC Systems open source project at LexisNexis. HPCC Systems (www.hpccsystems.com) from LexisNexis Risk Solutions offers a proven, data-intensive supercomputing platform designed for the enterprise to process and solve Big Data analytical problems. As an alternative to legacy technology, HPCC Systems offers a consistent data-centric programming language, two processing platforms and a single, complete end-to-end architecture for efficient processing. And it is open source!  ... I'm happy to provide whitepapers, articles or any other information needed.

    Join us as we continue this series of webinars specifically designed for the community by the community with the goal to share knowledge, spark innovation, and further build and link the relationships within our HPCC Systems community.

    This episode features project work presented by two interns from our HPCC Systems academic community:

    Elimar Macena - Federal Institute of Espírito Santo (IFES) - Campus Serra, Brazil - Studying Crime Patterns in São Paulo state between 2006 and 2016

    Intelligence led policing (ILP) refers to technology-driven crime data analysis activities to support the design of effective crime prevention and prosecution strategies. This is a new approach to fighting crime that has been gaining strength due to the convergence of two technological streams: the digitization and release of public information related to the occurrence of crimes and the development of technological platforms that allow the proper handling of such information, such as the HPCC Systems platform. Elimar's project used the HPCC platform to analyze crime patterns in the state of São Paulo in Brazil between the years of 2006 and 2017.

    Muiredach O'Riain - Goldsmiths, University of London - Machine Learning and the Forensic Applications of Audio Classification: An exploration of the forensic applications of sound classification using Artificial Neural Nets

    Muiredach will present how he used HPCC Systems to help build a reliable classification model that is able to accurately classify an input sound file to its location. His project intends to not only demonstrate a proof of concept for this technology, but also to lay the groundwork for what could be the next step in forensic audio analysis and a new means of gathering information through sound.

  • Big Data Processing & Analytics - HPCC Systems (LexisNexis)

    Florida Atlantic University Students and Faculty: Join us for a meetup!

    Attendance is limited to FAU Students and Faculty only.

    Machine Learning support in HPCC Systems is powerful and robust. Bob Foreman will present a quick but potent introduction to Machine Learning for those who are new to the subject. By the end of this presentation, you will have enough of the basic theory and terminology to make you dangerous. This presentation also provides an overview of the available bundles, including the newly released Generalized Neural Network Bundle (GNN), and lots more.

    Before the presentation, we will hear from Professor Taghi Khoshgoftaar and Robert Kennedy, a 2018 and 2019 HPCC Systems Summer intern and 1st place HPCC Systems Poster Competition winner. Trish will wrap-up by sharing information on the many HPCC Systems student opportunities available.

    About the Hosts
    Bob Foreman has worked with the HPCC Systems technology platform and the ECL programming language for over 5 years, and has been a technical trainer for over 25 years. He is the developer and designer of the HPCC Systems Online Training Courses, and is the Senior Instructor for all classroom and Webex/Lync based training.

    Trish McCall, Director HPCC Systems Programs with LexisNexis Risk Solutions, leads initiatives working with corporate and academia to help grow the HPCC Systems open source community, with emphasis on creating an ecosystem of advocates for expanding the value of the HPCC Systems platform. Trish also manages the ADAM Program, a tool donated to The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children by LexisNexis to assist with the distribution of missing child posters. To date, over 180 children have been recovered as a result of the program. Trish holds a BS in Computer Science Information Systems from Kennesaw State University and serves on their Industry Advisory Board.
