Seminar abstract

Seasoning Data Mining and Database Research by Connecting Big Data with Many People

Jian Pei
Associate Professor
School of Computing Science, Simon Fraser University

Abstract : Big data, which refers to the data sets that are too big to be handled using the existing database management tools, are emerging in many important applications, such as Internet search, business informatics, social networks, social media, genomics, and meteorology. Big data presents a grand challenge for database and data analytics research. In this talk, I review the exciting activities in my group addressing the big data challenge. The central theme is to connect big data with people in various ways. Particularly, I will showcase our recent progress in user preference understanding, context-aware, on-demand data mining using crowd intelligence, summarization and explorative analysis of large data sets, and privacy preserving data sharing and analysis.
