The AMPLab at Berkeley is the home of the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack (BDAS) and the birthplace of Spark, which serves as a central component of BDAS. Supported by 24 leading IT companies and an Expeditions in Computing award announced by the White House in 2012, the AMPLab is continuing to explore and expand the scope of Big Data research and platforms. In this talk, I’ll layout our future directions for BDAS and discuss some of our on-going research in topics such as Machine Learning and Data and Model Serving.
