Lecture – Prof. Geyong Min, University of Exeter

Data-Driven Knowledge Discovery for Intelligent Cloud and Network Management

No. A504, Yuxian Building, College of Engineering, Nanjing Agricultural University
Contents of the Lecture:

Aiming at achieving high performance and availability of Cloud computing and networking systems, our vision is to conduct efficient data analysis in order to dig valuable knowledge and actionable insights hidden in network big data for improving the design, operation, and management of Cloud and networks. This talk will present the innovative big data modelling and processing technologies, real-time incremental data analysis tools, and a cost-effective distributed platform we have recently developed to support better decision-making for system design, anomaly detection, resource management and optimization. This talk offers the theoretical underpinning for efficient processing of big data, and also opens up a new horizon of research and development by exploiting the key intelligence and insights hidden in content-rich big data for the design and improvement of Cloud computing and networking systems.
