BigData Intro

In the era of digital information BigData has emerged as an research area to precisely tackle the vast amounts of data generated. The data are to a high degree the result from an unprecedented scale of user-generated data, increasing availability of open access to governmental data, and the declining cost of collecting and storing enterprise data and scientific data sets. A major challenge is how to understand and gain value from this data. 

We focus on (but not limited to) the following main thematic research areas:

  1. Industry-relevant innovation (web-mining for trend analysis, product and service recommendation)
  2. AI and Machine Learning in large-scale applications
  3. Improved healthcare (health record and genomics mining of data for insights into age-related diseases)
  4. Information Security and IoT
