AMPLAB is a University of California, Berkeley lab focused on Big data analytics located in Soda Hall. The name stands for the Algorithms, Machines and People Lab[1][2]. It has been publishing papers since 2008[3] and was officially launched in 2011[4]. The AMPLab was co-directed by Professor Michael J. Franklin, Michael I. Jordan, and Ion Stoica.

While AMPLab has worked on a wide variety of big data projects (known as BDAS, the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack[5]), many know it as the lab that invented Apache Mesos[6], and Apache Spark[7], and Alluxio[8].
