If you follow data science news, you will know that the New York Times puts out some very good content. Well, recently they ran a section called BIG DATA 2013. There are many articles and tons of information. Happy Reading!
New York University is offering a Large Scale Machine Learning course starting later this month. This is NOT a MOOC, so it is not open to everyone. However, the lecture videos will be posted and possibly the other class handouts. This is not an introductory course, so knowledge of machine learning is a prerequisite. The course is being taught by John Langford of Microsoft Research and Yann LeCun of NYU.
For more about the course, see the original blog announcement.
