"Learning from High-Dimensional and Large Amounts of Data"


We review the design, analysis and implementation of a few machine learning algorithms for learning from high-dimensional and large amounts of data. We focus on algorithms that are both efficient and can yield compact models. Examples of projects at Google that use these algorithms will be given.
