    There not much time to cover the student presentation,
    but if I'd known about the $100 Amazon AWS free cap I the begnning of their talk, I would of questioned the use of Hadoop vs GPU. Hadoop is able to solve the problem but my intuition tells me a GPU based solution would get a lower cost answer.
