Title：？Challenges and Opportunities On Mining Big Data
Abstract:？The problem of big data has become increasingly importance in recent years. On the one hand, the big data is an asset that potentially can offer tremendous value or reward to the data owner. On the other hand, it poses tremendous challenges to realize the value out of the big data. The very nature of the big data poses challenges not only due to its volume, and velocity of being generated, but also its variety and veracity. Here variety means the data collected from various sources can have different formats from structured data to text to network/graph data to image, etc. Veracity concerns the trustworthiness of the data as the various data sources can have different reliability. In this talk, we will discuss these issues and approaches to address them.
Dr. Philip S. Yu is a Distinguished Professor and the Wexler Chair in Information Technology at the Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Chicago. Before joining UIC, he was at the IBM Watson Research Center, where he built a world-renowned data mining and database department. He is a Fellow of ACM and IEEE. Dr. Yu is the recipient of IEEE Computer Society’s 2013 Technical Achievement Award for “pioneering and fundamentally innovative contributions to the scalable indexing, querying, searching, mining and anonymization of big data”. With more than 890 publications and 300 patents, cited more than 62,000 times with an H-index of 116, Dr. Yu is a leader in the data mining and data management community.？
Dr. Yu is the Editor-in-Chief of ACM Transactions on Knowledge Discovery from Data (TKDD).？ He is on the steering committee of the IEEE Conference on Data Mining and ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management and was a member of the IEEE Data Engineering steering committee.？ He was the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE) (2001-2004). He received a Research Contributions Award from IEEE Int. Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) in 2003, the ICDM 2013 10-year Highest-Impact Paper Award, and the EDBT Test of Time Award (2014). Dr. Yu received his PhD from Stanford University.
