Title: Big-Data Analytics for Cloud, IoT and Cognitive Learning
Abstract: In the big data era, successful cloud systems, web services and datacenters must be designed to store, process, learn, and analyze big data to discover new knowledge or making critical decisions. The purpose is to build up a big data industry to provide cognitive services to offset human shortcomings in handling labor-intensive tasks with high efficiency. These goals are achieved through hardware virtualization, machine learning, deep learning, IoT sensing, data analytics, and cognitive computing. For example, new cloud services appear as Learning as a Services (LaaS), Analytics as a Service (AaaS), or Security as a Service (SaaS) along with the growing practices of machine learning and data analytics.
Today, IT companies, big enterprises, universities, and governments are mostly converting their data centers into cloud facilities to support mobile and networked applications. Supercomputers having a similar cluster architecture as clouds are also under transformation to deal with the large data sets or streams. Smart clouds become greatly on demand to support social, media, mobile, business and government operations. Supercomputers and cloud platforms have different ecosystems and programming environments. The gap between them must close up towards big data computing in the future.
