(Sep. 18) Networking for Big Data: Challenges and Opportunities

Last updated :2017-09-14

Topic: Networking for Big Data: Challenges and Opportunities
Speaker: Dr. Shui Yu
(Senior Lecturer, Deakin University, Australia)
Moderator: Prof. WU Di
Time: 10:30-11:30 am, Monday, September 18, 2017
Venue: A101 Meeting Room, School of Data and Computer Science, Guangzhou East Campus, SYSU

Abstract:
Big Data is one of the hottest topics in our communities, and networking is an indispensable corner stone for the fancy big data applications. As a result, there is an emerging research branch, Networking for Big Data (NBD), in networking and communication fields. In this talk, we will firstly overview the current landscape of this energetic area, and then present the unprecedented challenges in this new domain, and finally discuss the current research directions in the main topics in networking for big data. We humbly hope this talk will shed light for forthcoming researchers to further explore the uncharted part of this promising land.
