It's About the Data: A Decade+ Experiment in "Big Data"

Over the last decade, AT&T Shannon Labs developed a broad and deep capability to manipulate, analyze, and visualize large amounts of data -- what is now typically referred to as "Big Data." It has been done in a laboratory called AT&T InfoLab with live, real-time data for over a decade. The data, and associated business problems, both inform the technology created, and support value through many applications.

Recent topics of focus have included: real-time data mining, data stream management, interactive visualization, data mining of non-relational data (e.g., speech), and mining of data from distributed sensor networks , with applications ranging from customer experience, to recommender systems, to medical monitoring/predicting.

This discussion will highlight a number of the approaches to maximize the value of data, as well as highlighting trends in the area.
