Seminario "Modeling and Processing Information in Systems of Engagement”

  • Data: 19 giugno 2015 dalle 10:00 alle 12:00

  • Luogo: Aula 4.1, Scuola di Ingegneria e Architettura, Viale Risorgimento 2, Bologna

Venerdì 19 alle ore 10 in aula 4.1 (sede di Ingegneria, Viale Risorgimento) si terrà il seminario di Mukesh Mohania "Modeling and Processing Information in Systems of Engagement”.



The proliferation of mobile devices has changed the way digital information is consumed and its efficacy measured. These personal mobile devices know a lot about the user behavior from the sensors and activities performed by the user. This data can be used to provide a lot of personalized information to the user, and a measure of effectiveness of the information to the information providers. However, there are lot of challenges in modeling and processing such data from these systems of engagement so that there is a right balance of the redundancy in the data stored, and the usefulness of the data for analysis. In this talk we will discuss (1) What is a System of Engagement? (2) What is "Contextual Information" and how to store and process the contextual such information on Big Data Platform?, and (3) Illustrate SOE for Education example.
