Variety, Velocity, Volume and Veracity are the four Vs for Big Data. Most of the technologies available have shown how to treat the Volume. However, due to the increasing number of streaming data sources, the Velocity problem is as relevant as never before. Moreover, Veracity and especially Variety problems have increased the difficulty of the challenge.
Recently, a 3 day mini-course/tutorial was offed at the Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled computing (Kno.e.sis) at Wright State University. The focus was on two aspects of the Big Data problem- Velocity and Variety. In particular, we discussed how with streaming data and semantic technologies it is possible to enable efficient and effective stream processing for advanced application development. The speakers were Dr. Emanuele Della Vella and Riccardo Tommasini from Politecnico di Milano, and Prof. Amit Sheth, Pramod Anantharam and Pavan Kapanipathi from Kno.e.sis.
Attendees will gain enough background to use tools made available by the academic and industrial community to solve prototypical problems. Example applications include: Smart Cities, Social Media Analytics, Sensor Networks, Situational Awareness, Digital Health, etc.
Intermediate IT level (programming or application development skills, knowledge of data management and Web technologies).
