Big Data linkages across economic, social and education data including social networks
Big Data is one of the main science and technology challenges of today. While this is multifaceted, mathematics is at the very core of the challenge. This event will highlight current challenges in mathematical methodology alongside new mathematical problems arising from Big Data applications. Papers will be accepted for the conference based on a 300-500 word abstract for oral or poster presentation. Abstracts should be submitted by Friday 3 October 2014.
In recent years, Big Data has become a new ubiquitous term. Big Data is transforming science, engineering, medicine, healthcare, finance, business, and ultimately society itself. The IEEE International Conference on Big Data 2014 (IEEE BigData 2014) provides a leading forum for disseminating the latest research in Big Data Research, Development, and Application.
Failing to jump aboard the Big Data train will leave businesses in the dust of newer, smarter start-ups, says Prof. Andy Neely
An institute named after computer pioneer and code-breaker Alan Turing is to be set up, the chancellor announced in his Budget speech on Wednesday.
A super energy-efficient high-performance computer, with a performance equivalent to 4,000 desktop machines running at once, will enable researchers to handle the Big Data challenges of the future - not least the design of a system to support the world's largest telescope.
A collaborative project between physicists, oncologists and computer scientists at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, launched last month, will develop improved tools for the planning of high precision radiotherapy. Accel-RT will also help overcome time constraints that currently limit the use of complex radiotherapy treatment.
Brits notoriously love bureaucracy, so it’s perhaps unsurprising that the UK is a world leader in administrative data. With the digital era heralding a data revolution unlike anything in human history, education researchers such as Anna Vignoles are in a unique position to take advantage of this country’s data deluge.
