Topic: "CSSIBDA: Case Study Scenarios using Intelligent Bigdata Approaches."

Today big data or data science is emerge. The big data issue for big industries such as telecommunication, banking, healthcare and big educations environments such as research universities. The aim of this talk is presenting main elements of big data, current research work challenges issues in architecture design, store data and information/data retrieve. Big database types such as cloud, big data security, software engineering solutions and big data search engines reviewed. In addition, with the exponential growth of data collected and available online, the need to properly sort and use that data efficiently arises. This poses new challenges to agencies and almost all businesses. These huge amounts of data known as big data. In this talk, six advanced big data scenarios have been introduced and under research development. Best machine learning techniques have been selected and used in these scenarios for advanced pre/post processing. This talk will present these big data scenarios by name with detailed pre/post processing solutions. The scenarios of big data usage are countless and almost every company has to deal with this problem. However, big data have other form of definition in term of quality and quantity. Therefore, big data techniques such as machine learning must have a reduction algorithms tools not compression techniques to obtain useful data. Keywords: big data, machine learning, data analytic, reduction, quality, quantity
