The language barrier is one of the most significant obstacle for business development, scientific progress and cross-cultural communication in Europe. At the same time, multilingual technology framework may serve as a platform bridging people speaking on different languages, so as a result simplifying co-operation, advancing business relations, conducting a joint researches and cross-cultural communication.
It is obvious today that language technologies is key enabler of next-generation, user-centric ICT services those will serve as base of Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy. Application of language oriented research results is one of the most important prerequisites for rapid development of Internet economy, Start-Up movement and nation wide government online services.

Understanding Big Data: 3Vs of Big Data

Posted by Abzetdin Adamov on April 24, 2015

3Vs of Big Data - CeDAWI - Abzetdin Adamov

3Vs of Big Data – CeDAWI

3Vs (volume, variety and velocity) those best describe and characterize different aspects of Large-Scale Data Processing (Big Data).
Volume – refers to the amount of data and is measured in Mega-Bytes, Giga-Bytes, Terra-Bytes, Peta-Bytes, Exa-Bytes and today Zetta-Bytes (and Yotta-Bytes in far future). Currently Digital Universe produced from beginning of the humanity ius estimated around 4.5 ZBs.
Variety – refers to different forms and types of data available online and offline, including structured (Databases, XML, logs, …), semistructured (web pages, email, …), and unstructured (text, images, video, audio, …).
Velocity – refers to increasing speed of data production and consequently performance that data-driven businesses need in order to benefit from their data. The problem is not related with just storing of streams of data, but rather to transforming fast-flowing data into resource that fosters innovation and decision-making process.

Big Data Day Baku 2015 – or Big Day on Big Data

Posted by Abzetdin Adamov on April 21, 2015

Big Data Day Baku 2015 - CeDAWI - Center for Data Analytics and Web Insights  - Abzetdin Adamov

Big Data Day Baku 2015 – CeDAWI – Center for Data Analytics and Web Insights

The extremely fast grow of Internet Services, Web and Mobile Applications and advance of the related Pervasive, Ubiquity and Cloud Computing concepts have stumulated production of tremendous amounts of data partially available online (call metadata, texts, emails, social media updates, photos, videos, location, etc.). Even with the power of today’s modern computers it still big challenge for business and government organizations to manage, search, analyze, and visualize this vast amount of data as information. Data-Intensive computing which is intended to address this problems become quite intense during the last few years yielding strong results. Data intensive computing framework is a complex system which includes hardware, software, communications, and Distributed File System (DFS) architecture.

Just small part of this huge amount is structured (Databases, XML, logs) or semistructured (web pages, email), over 90% of this information is unstructured, what means data does not have predefined structure and model. Generally, unstructured data is useless unless applying data mining and analysis techniques. At the same time, just in case if you can process and understand your data, this data worth anything, otherwise it becomes useless.

Big Data Day Baku 2015 is the first Data-Centric event is planned to be held in Azerbaijan.
The events main goal is increase public awareness of new opportunities and challenges brought by Big Data, share experience with industry and government on the development of state-of-the-art Data Analysis technologies, attract youth to make career and do outstanding research in Data Science.

SOME OF TOPICS TO BE COVERED:

  • Big Data Era – How Big is Big Data?
  • Big Opportunities and Challenges brought by Big Data – Big Data Use Cases
  • Open Data for Public Sector Transformation and Innovation
  • Big Data Infrastructure
  • Open Source Platforms and Technologies for Big Data Analytics
  • Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistic
  • Large-Scale Data Management Life Cycle

Fundamental concept of Information Security base on Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability

Fundamental concept of Information Security base on Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability

Fundamental concept of Information Security base on Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability, also known as the CIA triad (don’t confuse with Central Intelligence Agency)
Confidentiality – Information only has value if access can be managed;
Integrity – Information only has value if it is correct;
Availability – Information only has value if the right people can access it at the right times.

Talking about SECURITY: two type of companies and Insider factor

Posted by Abzetdin Adamov on March 11, 2015

Talking about SECURITY: two type of companies and Insider factor

Talking about SECURITY: two type of companies and Insider factor

Talking about SECURITY: There are two type of companies dealing with any kind of sensitive DATA or having DATA-driven business:

1) those that have been hacked
2) those don’t know that they have been hacked

The Cloud-base services widely available now just increase the suspiciousness of customers and make them not rush into the cloud. The problem is not related to the quality or security of the cloud services, but to the insider risk factor. The administrator for a Cloud-based services can access executive-only financial data and conduct as insider delivering a confidential information to outsiders.

Just several of bunch of BIG PROBLEMS derived from BIG DATA

Posted by Abzetdin Adamov on March 6, 2015

BIG-DATA-CeDAWI– Power consumption is issue – power costs for the petaflop systems can exceed $5M annually
– Network capacity is issue – instead of moving DATA to the compute processor, the computational power is being moved to the DATA;
– CAP problem is issue – in Distributed Platforms three conditions Consistency, Availability and Partitioning can’t live together;
– Moore Law is issue – Moore Law doesn’t work anymore – DATA to be processed grows much faster than computing power

So, there are large space for innovative and applied research in area of DATA SCIENCE

During his address Mr. Adamov made emphasis on the importance of understanding the technologycal fundament of the Internet, the open and transparent nature of which makes it possible for cybercrimes to use it for terrorist purposes. Talking about the use of Internet for terrorism purpose we inevitably get a question: which is more important Availability or Security? Until recently it was obvious – Availability is more vital, now some balance must be figured out, which should be transparent for general user and impenetrable for crime. At the same time International Cooperation is the key condition for success.
