TITLE: Exploring Enron Email Dataset with Kiji and Hive

ABSTRACT:
Apache Hive is a data warehousing system for large volumes of data stored in Hadoop that provides SQL based access for exploring datasets. KijiSchema provides evolvable schemas of primitive and compound types on top of HBase. The integration between these provides the best aspects of both worlds (ad hoc SQL based querying on top of datasets using evolvable schemas containing complex objects). This talk will present an examples of queries utilizing this integration to do exploratory analysis of the Enron email corpus. Delving into topics such as email responder pairs and sentiment analysis can expose many of the interesting points in the rise and fall of Enron.
