A Systematic Review of Type-2 Diabetes by Hadoop/Map-Reduce


  • Amity University, Noida - 201313, Uttar Pradesh, India


Objectives: The goal is to study about the disease called Diabetes Mellitus (Type_2) and how to cure it for better healthcare. Methods/Statistical Analysis: To explore dataset of the Type-2 Diabetes and R environment statisticallythe Hadoop/Map- Reducer algorithm will be used.Findings:Analyzing the different parameters of the disease, apart from medical diagnosis and causal agents, our review shows that by using Big Data we can predict the other factors which result in demographic variations of diabetes, geographical distribution of disease and its causes and other factors needed for better outcomes of healthcare. Application/Improvements: Big data is mostly used for data analytics in business, more research is needed to make use of this technology in other fields where the data generated is huge.
