states, "In information technology, big data
consists of data sets that grow so large that they
become awkward to work with using on-hand database
management tools. Difficulties include capture, storage,
search, sharing, analytics, and visualizing." The
purpose of this workshop is to examine the intersection
of big data with mobile computing, considering devices,
applications, and networks.
This workshop will examine the opportunities, issues,
and evolving architectures. Items under consideration
for this meeting include:
- What are the trends with big data
- How does big data apply to mobile
networks and mobile computing?
- How can operators leverage big
- How can enterprises apply big
data analytics to mobile workforces?
- How does big data relate to
mobile cloud computing?
- What kind of big data can mobile
- What type of mobile applications
could take advantage of big data?
Note that presenters and
many of the attendees, are world leading technologists on
the subject material. We allocate sufficient time for
discussion that attendees can ask questions of greatest
interest. Moreover, the workshops allow informal
networking during breaks where attendees can exchange

10:15 Presentation. Kushal Datta, Research
Scientist, Intel. What
Is Big Data and What Is It Capable Of?
(Businesses today find lucrative opportunities in
advertising relevant products based on users’
behavior on search engines, social behavior for
example commodities that excite them, places they
want to visit and types of entertainment programs
they follow. This means that rapidly evolving
terabytes to petabytes of unstructured data such as
blogs or tweets from variety of sources such as
social networks, travel sites and blogs, data from
networks of sensors etc. needs to be managed and
analyzed such that meaningful information can be
extracted from them to make informed business
decisions. Behold, the era of Big Data is here! Big
Data encompasses the complex machine learning
algorithms such as clustering, classification,
recommendation engines to identify individual and
group behavior, recommendations, ranks and patterns
from unstructured data and create business
intelligence, data parallelization and partitioning
and large scale frameworks to efficiently store and
move the data on demand. In this talk, we are going
to look at opportunities and challenge in these
different paradigms of big data and their pros and
11:30 Presentation. Guangdeng Liao, Research
Scientist, Intel Labs, Intel. Architecture of
Big-Data Systems. (We live in the “big
data” world where data from variety of sources such
as social network, internet services, sensors, small
devices connected to the Internet, is massively
exploding and rapidly evolving from terabytes to
petabytes. Access to large volume of data is
opening new business opportunities in commerce,
science, and computing applications. To harness
those big data, a new generation of technologies and
architectures are needed to effectively handle the
dramatic data growth, to seamlessly integrate
structure and unstructured data analysis and to
economically extract value from very large volumes
of a wide variety of data by constructing a new way
of capturing, organizing and analyzing data. In this
talk, I am going to talk about architectures,
ecosystems and evolution of some emerging big data
frameworks (e.g. Hadoop, GraphLab). I will also
discuss some recent advances in architecture of big
Jonathan Wiggs, Data Architect, NetMotion Wireless. Collecting
Located Big Data and Applied Mobile Usage. (This
presentation gives mobile technology professionals a
high level overview of the practical components of
Big Data collection and some of its practical
applications. The rapid evolution of Big Data
and corresponding technologies, over the last five
years especially, have given rise to amazing uses of
data correlation along with predictions that theory
based research was quickly becoming a thing of the
past. Over the course of this discussion we'll
be touching on these ideas with related topics such
as examining what kind of data is important, why
geographically located data is much more than just a
set of coordinates, and the applied use of
prediction with a naïve Bayesian approach.)
1:30 Intel cafeteria available for attendees to
purchase their own lunch.
1:30 to 2:15
Presentation. Ken Westin, Security Researcher. Protecting Security and
Privacy in a Mobile Environment. (Security
and privacy issues raised when mobile devices
communicate with a big data analytics system.)
2:15 to 2:30 Break
2:30 to 3:45 Panel
will Big Data Analytics Shape the Design of Future
Device, Network and Cloud Infrastructures? What
are Security Considerations?
