General conclusions Algorithms can dramatically change the runtime order, e.g. O(N 2 ) to O(N) High dimensionality is a persistent challenge The non-default (e.g. streaming, disk…) settings need more research work Systems issues need more work, e.g. connection to data storage/management Hadoop does not solve everything

24
General conclusions No general theory for the tradeoff between statistical quality and computational cost (lower/upper bounds, etc) More aspects of hardness (statistical and computational) are needed
