Meeting Society Challenges: Big Data Driven Approaches

By 2020, the total size of digital data generated by social networks, sensors, biomedical imaging and simulation devices, will reach an estimated 44 Zettabytes (e.g. 44 trillion gigabytes) according to an IDC report. This type of 'big data', together with the advances in information and communication technologies such as Internet of things (IoT), connected smart objects, wearable technology, ubiquitous computing, is transforming every aspect of modern life and bringing great challenges and spectacular opportunities to fulfil our dream of a sustainable smart society.

This talk will be focusing on new developments and methods based on big data driven approaches to address society challenges and demonstrate our innovative research through real case studies in various application domains such as Health, Food, Smart Cities, etc.

Refreshments will be available from 17:30 with the talk starting at 18:00. This will last around 45 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A session and a drinks reception. Please email if you have any questions.
