Spring 2010 Courses To Watch

Here are some of the courses I've run across that I found interesting. I'll start with the ones I'm currently taking here at UMass:

CS645 - Advanced Databases
STAT 608 - Bayesian Statistics by Michael Lavine, see Chapters 5, 6, and 7 of his book.

There's also a very interesting DB seminar, Large Scale Data Analysis by Yanlei which takes a DB perspective on MapReduce and other large-scale data analysis problems.

Now here are a few from elsewhere:

Jimmy Lin is teaching his course, Data-Intensive Information Processing Applications with MapReduce.

Eugene Agitchtein's course on IR and Web Search at Emory.

(Added 3/25)
Michael Jordan at Berkeley is teaching a course on Bayesian Modeling and Inference.

Soumen Chakrabarti is teaching Organizing Web Information which focuses on extraction of information, like entities.

Let me what good ones I'm missing!
