'Sensor' Stream Processing, Analysis and Applications
Roger Zimmermann, Associate Professor at National University of Singapore
We live in an era where an unprecedented amount of data is continuously generated and available. A significant fraction of that data is generated from sensors that observe the physical environment and its phenomena surrounding us. Another source of data are social media sites where posted entries can have multiple attributes, such as geo-locations. Social website streams are also sometimes referred to as ‘social sensors.’ There are great opportunities in processing such streams to extract information and knowledge that can then be used for many novel applications. However, the processing of data streams from physical sensors and social media streams also presents considerable challenges since such data is often multi-modal, noisy, inaccurate and incomplete. In this talk I will reflect on some of the work that we and other groups have done in the area of processing and analysis of such streams, the challenges we have encountered and some possible solutions.
Roger Zimmermann is an associate professor with the Computer Science Department at the National University of Singapore (NUS). He is also a deputy director with the Interactive and Digital Media Institute (IDMI) at NUS and co-director of the Centre of Social Media Innovations for Communities (COSMIC). Earlier he held the position of Research Area Director with the Integrated Media Systems Center (IMSC) at the University of Southern California (USC). Among his research interests are mobile video management, streaming media architectures, distributed systems, spatio-temporal data management and location-based services. He has co-authored six patents and more than two-hundred peer-reviewed articles in the aforementioned areas. Roger is on the editorial boards of the IEEE Multimedia Communications Technical Committee (MMTC) R-Letter and the Springer International Journal of Multimedia Tools and Applications (MTAP). Additionally, he is an associate editor for the ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications and Applications journal (TOMM) and he is currently serving as the secretary of ACM SIGSPATIAL. He has participated on the conference program committees of many leading conferences and as reviewer of many journals. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees from USC.
