Title: Recent Developments in Data Science

Muhammad Asif Naeem
Data Science Research Group.
Senior Lecturer in School of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences,
Auckland University of Technology


Data Science is poised to become one of the most intensively researched areas within the Computer Science discipline. The research carried out by me is a cutting edge of new developments in this field. In this talk first I will present an overview of my recent research developments in terms of numerous projects on data science. Second, I will present some challenges in processing of streaming data in one of my projects, real-time data warehousing. For example, how to deal with skewed transactional stream data in real-time data warehousing or how to handle the transactional stream data when its arrival rate is faster than service rate. I will present my solutions that I developed to address these challenges. I will present some experiments which proves the effectiveness of my solutions designed for these challenges.
