Please note the day; Thursday (NOT a Friday this time).


Recent advances in sensing technologies, on-line social networking, and the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as mobile and cloud computing are blurring the boundaries between the physical, social and cyber worlds; fuelling the astonishing growth of internet users in the past five years; and causing an explosion of big data that is being produced from a myriad of internet-connected devices and social networks. Despite an expanding array of business, government and scientific applications that require distilling knowledge from big cyber-physical and social data, currently there is no easy way to manage and exploit such big data, do this in real-time or/and while being on the move. Accomplishing these requires the development of novel solutions for discovering on-line cyber-physical and social media sources, dynamically integrating such sources and their data, and analysing/personalising/localising potentially billions of data streams and tens of years of historical data form on-line cyber-physical and social networks anywhere and in real time. In this talk we provide an overview of industry-driven research efforts towards developing IoT solutions for smart big-data exploitation.
