Big Data System Lab

We are living in the Information Age. Many human activities are fundamentally changed by Information Freedom that everyone can gather, access, store, process, and share information anytime and anywhere. Information is any knowledge, and one possible method to represent information is by data which are quantities with or without natural physical meanings.

People are constantly looking for better ways to harness big data enabled by Information Freedom. Big data systems in all forms are more popular now than ever before, and are widely used in all walks of life. IoT devices and mobile terminals, such as sensors nodes, cell phones, and tablets, offer a compact, customized, and intuitive form factor to use information anywhere and anytime. Big data system infrastructures such as data centers, data networks, and wireless access networks, are offering essential services to big data applications. In the coming years, IoT, machine learning, and cloud computing, will drive the technology development of big data systems. The extremely high-growth markets of China are fueling rapid technology adoptions and eventually promote as well as capitalize domestic innovations.
