Mobile, Cloud, Analytics – Challenges and Opportunities for Data-Driven Infrastructure
Speaker(s) : Prof. Xiaoming Fu (Université de Göttingen, Allemagne)
With the tremendous growth of data-intensive applications and platforms, various challenges emerge particularly those concerning mobile usage, cloud computing and big data analytics. How to mitigate these challenges and how can we embrace the opportunities in this era? In this talk, I will introduce some of our ongoing efforts and outline a vision of how social media, mobile sensing, big data and cloud computing could be converged in a universal infrastructure to provide a more holistic view on future ICT-rich life.
