From Big Data to Big Knowledge: Knowledge Engineering with Big Data

Xindong Wu, University of Louisiana, USA

Abstract

Big Data processing concerns large-volume, growing data sets with multiple, heterogeneous, autonomous sources, and explores complex and evolving relationships among data objects. This talk starts with a HACE theorem (http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/articleDetails.jsp?arnumber=6547630) that characterizes the features of the Big Data revolution, and presents BigKE, a big data knowledge engineering framework that handles fragmented knowledge modeling and online learning from multiple information sources, nonlinear fusion on fragmented knowledge, and automated demanddriven knowledge navigation. We discuss challenging issues and our ongoing research efforts with BigKE.
