BigData – IE Strategic Research Area - Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering
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:
- Industry-relevant innovation (web-mining for trend analysis, product and service recommendation)
- AI and Machine Learning in large-scale applications
- Improved healthcare (health record and genomics mining of data for insights into age-related diseases)
- Information Security and IoT
