Five days GIAN course on “Learning from Data Streams” UPCOMING
My Role: Host faculty

Today an enormous amount of data is coming from various sources like sensor networks, financial transactions, traffic monitoring, sets of web pages, etc. in the form of data streams. The volume of data is rapidly increasing due to the development of information and communication technologies. Data comes mostly in the form of streams. Learning from this ever-growing amount of data requires flexible learning models that self-adapt over time. In addition, these models must take into account many constraints: real-time processing, high-velocity, and dynamic multi-form change such as concept drift and novelty. This course on Learning from Data Streams focuses on recent techniques and software for real-time processing of data streams. The primary objectives of the course are as follows:

  • Exposing participants to the fundamentals of Data Stream.
  • Identifying common patterns and use cases for real time stream processing.
  • Vast coverage and exposure to various algorithmic techniques such as data stream clustering, ubiquitous data mining, pattern mining, novelty detection with the aim to encourage participants for future research in this field.
  • Understand the high level architecture of data streaming tools such as Massive Online Analysis (MOA), Apache Spark and Apache Flink.
  • Since real time stream processing is having very wider applicability, therefore this course is aimed at the more general audience including mathematician, statistician, and computer scientists, electrical and electronic engineer.

IEEE CIS Summer School 2019 “Big Data Analytics and Stream Processing:Tools, Techniques and Application”
My Role:Course Coordinator

In today’s world, Big data analytics and stream processing have taken great hype due to the digitization of the environment along with the integration of smart data computing services and interconnectivity. This digitized world offers huge applications especially in the fields of agriculture, healthcare, smart education, economy, energy, industry, and a lot more. Most of the required data is gathered by the countless number of sensor devices being applied in the vicinity of humans to identify certain activities or scenarios. In order to process such a huge never-ending stream of data, there is a need to re-think the way data is processed for both cases i.e. data-at-rest and data-in-motion. In order to have knowledge about the latest trend in this field, the IEEE CIS Summer School on Big data analytics and stream processing was aimed at highlighting the tools, techniques, and applications from the perspective of future intensive applications. To serve this purpose, this IEEE CIS Summer School featured a large number of keynote speakers/plenary/invited talks on advanced topics and also offered a good platform for the participants for the innovative and entrepreneurial ideas. See more ….
