Track Information

Track: Big Data and Analytics & Machine Learning

In recent years the necessity of analysis of huge amount of data has gained increasing attention of researchers and practitioners. The term big data was coined and has started to appear in many different domains including retail, banking, insurance, health, and education. Smart cities may use big data to improve planning and create better services for their citizens. The use of semantics may help utilization of big data. The purpose of this track is to gather researchers and practitioners who are dealing with solving real life issues with support of semantics and big data analysis. Special attention will be paid to applications of semantics and big data in intelligent cities design.

The track is well aligned with the conference theme on climate change as big data analytics offers valuable insights into climate change by processing and analyzing large and complex datasets. By leveraging advanced analytics techniques, it contributes to climate modeling, real-time monitoring, impact assessments, energy efficiency, and communication efforts. The integration of big data analytics with other emerging technologies can unlock new possibilities in addressing the multifaceted challenges of climate change and facilitating a transition to a more sustainable future.
