As massive data acquisition and storage becomes increasingly affordable, a wide variety of enterprises are employing statisticians to engage in sophisticated data analysis. In this talk we highlight the emerging practice of Magnetic, Agile, Deep (MAD) data analysis as a radical departure from traditional Enterprise Data Warehouses and Business Intelligence. We present design philosophy, techniques and experience in the field providing MAD analytics for businesses and researchers confronted with ever-expanding data sets.
We describe design methodologies that support the agile working style of analysts in these settings. We present data-parallel algorithms for statistical techniques, with a focus on density methods. Finally, we reflect on system features that enable agile design and flexible algorithm development, with lessons for both SQL and MapReduce programming styles.
