Special Issue "Learning with Big Data: Scalable Algorithms and Novel Applications"
A special issue of Big Data and Cognitive Computing (ISSN 2504-2289).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2018)
Recent years have witnessed unprecedented growth in the scale, dimensionality and complexities of data in various areas, spurring BIG DATA research and development. Big data research has empowered the success of many applications in urban computing, social science, e-commerce, computer vision, natural language processing, speech recognition, bioinformatics, education, physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. On the other hand, in order to enable learning with big data, scalable algorithms have attracted much attention in machine learning and data mining. Numerous computational techniques for Big Data have been proposed, including stochastic optimization, parallel and distributed optimization, randomization, and GPU computing. This Special Issue addresses the emerging topic of learning with big data, with an emphasis on novel applications and scalable algorithms. Papers may choose to mainly focus on one aspect (novel applications or scalable algorithms) but also provide sufficient background or discussion on the other.
Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include but not limited to:
- Novel Applications of Machine Learning and Data Mining on Big Data. In particular, we welcome novel applications in spatial and temporal data mining, urban and mobile computing, smart city and smart community, e-commerce, and computer vision.
- Big Data Learning Techniques and their applications. These include stochastic optimization, online optimization, parallel and distributed optimization, randomized dimensionality reduction, GPU computing, etc. The employment of these techniques for solving machine learning and data mining problems on big datasets are particularly welcome.
- Novel Machine Learning Methods such as Deep Learning and their applications to big datasets.
