On Grouped Observation Level Interaction and a Big Data Monte Carlo Sampling Algorithm
Big Data is transforming the way we live. From medical care to social networks, data is playing a central role in various applications. As the volume and dimensionality of datasets keeps growing, designing effective data analytics algorithms emerges as an important research topic in statistics. In this dissertation, I will summarize our research on two data analytics algorithms: a visual analytics algorithm named Grouped Observation Level Interaction with Multidimensional Scaling and a big data Monte Carlo sampling algorithm named Batched Permutation Sampler. These two algorithms are designed to enhance the capability of generating meaningful insights and utilizing massive datasets, respectively.
