Data Processing: an evolutionary and multidisciplinary perspective
Inria and LIRMM, Montpellier, France
The inaugural lecture will address the context of the growth of the amount and variety of data (images, audio, matrixes, text, etc.), produced in various areas (social networks, agronomy, botany, medicine and others), which has also increased the technological and research challenges in the processing of this large volume of data, termed by the term Big Data.
In the lecture, Professor Esther Pacitti will present a vision of the evolution of data processing methods from relational databases, distributed databases, and big data to data science. It will also expose some specific applications in Agronomy, Botany and Seismology, and share research experiences in France and Brazil.
