even though you have not studied or tried Hadoop
I never said that. I said: "not so much".
You assumed that just because Hadoop is Java-based, you cannot use other languages within it.
I never said that, and certainly did not assume it. The monoculture--as I clearly said--is the filesystem, not the language it is written in.
What I do know--from experience--is that problems of scaling the largely IO-bound processing of huge volumes of small text records, is entirely different to that of scaling the largely CPU-bound processing of relatively small numbers of large to huge binary datasets. Ie. The OPs 3D brain images.
Your interpretation of my posts reflects your own assumptions more than mine.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
