CALL FOR PAPERS

 

The 2nd INNS Conference on Big Data 2016

 

October 23-25, 2016, Thessaloniki, Greece

 

http://conferences.cwa.gr/inns-big-data2016/

Big data is not just about storage of and access to data. Analytics play a
big role in making sense

of that data and exploiting its value. But learning from big data has become
a significant challenge

and requires development of new types of algorithms. Most machine learning
algorithms can't easily

scale up to big data. Plus there are challenges of high-dimensionality,
velocity and variety. 

 

The neural network field has historically focused on algorithms that learn
in an online, incremental 

mode without requiring in-memory access to huge amounts of data. This type
of learning is not only 

ideal for streaming data (as in the Industrial Internet or the Internet of
Things), but could also be 

used on stored big data. Neural network technologies thus can become
significant components of big

data analytics platforms and this second edition of INNS Conference on Big
Data will continue on this 

collaborative adventure with big data and other learning technologies. 

 

Thus the aim of this conference is to promote new advances and research
directions in efficient and 

innovative algorithmic approaches to analyzing big data (e.g. deep networks,
nature-inspired and 

brain-inspired algorithms), implementations on different computing platforms
(e.g. neuromorphic, 

GPUs, clouds, clusters) and applications of Big Data Analytics to solve
real-world problems 

(e.g. weather prediction, transportation, energy management).
