Big Data Analytics and Data Stream Mining
The technological advances in data acquisition hardware and data storage have led to a growth in the size of datasets used by science and industry, this known as the Big Data phenomenon. However, the sheer size of data and the speed at which data is generated is challenging our analysis methods in computational as well as in qualitative terms of the analysis results. We are supervising PhD candidates that will work to advance data mining algorithms for Big Data processing. The PhD candidate is expected to address some of the following issues: development of parallel data mining algorithms and techniques, development of data analytics algorithms that process data in real time, formation of sentiment analysis techniques on unstructured data, and the advancement of data mining techniques for smart mobile devices.
Duration: 36 months
