COE Hosts Mission-Critical Big Data Analytics Workshop

Mission-Critical Big Data Analytics Workshop

The third edition of the Mission-Critical Big Data Analytics Workshop took place May 15-16, at Prairie View A&M University. “Hosted by the Electrical Engineering Department, the workshop covered state-of-the-art research and development in deep learning and high-performance computing for big data analytics, especially for mission-critical applications,” said Interim Dean Shield B. Lin. “Students received tutorial sessions with hands-on training, and four research thrust teams from the CREDIT center did technical presentations. Collectively, there were some great researchers, including Team 1: PVAMU Cloud Computing Research for Big Data Analytics, Team 2: RF Spectrum Surveillance using Deep Learning, Team 3: Hierarchical Transfer CNN for loT, and Team 4: Real-Time Video Analytics using Mobile GPU on UAVs. We also had a poster session and a demo session presented as well.”

President Ruth Simmons delivered the opening speech for the workshop, and Dr. Barbara Chapman, a professor from Stony Brook University, Dr. Jaret C. Riddick, director of the U.S. Army Research Lab, and Theresa Kushner, senior vice president of Dell, served as keynote speakers.
