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.

Prof. Adnan Yazici from Middle East Technical University has renimded to participants about last year establishment of Computer Engineers Association. Prof. Halit Oguz Tuzen critisized the view of some government institutions, in paticular Professional Competence Institution, to Computer Engineering as profession. According to him this official institution is confusing two professions: computer engineer and certified specialist.

Prof.Dr. Altay Guvenir from Bilkent University presented topic on “Frieqently Asked Questions in MUDEK Akkreditation”. MUDEK is association recognized by the Higher Education Council of Turkey as the National Quality Assurance Agency in accrediting engineering programs. MUDEK is member of ENAEE – European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education
One of the most important criteria of engineer competance is to make students work within project-teams that require multidisciplinary knowledge. Good ideas, thoughts and projects have any meaning just in case if they will be applied and likely immediately.

Assoc.Prof. Ahmet Koltuksuz from Yasar University presented speech on “Cyber Security Education and Proposals”. He informed listeners about new trends in Cyber Security and improvements that should be done in teaching of this subject because of the new trends.

Skype has more then 220 mln users that creats more than 20 bln. minutes of VoIP coomunication. Smart phone users send billions messages using WhatsApp application what eliminates using of SMS service. At the same time this established acosystem and trends creates new opportunities and challenges for service provides.

According to Dr. Sinan Utku who is United States Patent Attorney, Technology Development and patenting have strong relation. Cilicon Valley were in evidence in the 1910. What is the secret of US technology success? One of the most valuable reason is really working patenting process supported by appropriate legislation.
Some business people in Wall Street called Patent Wolfs buys bunkrupt technological companies to investigate the opportunity of applying to court against successfull companies that may break obtained patents.

Qafqaz University continue activities directed to raising of Public Awareness on Information Security

Posted by Abzetdin Adamov on June 9, 2012

The 1-st International Information Security Workshop -  Public Awareness on Information Security

Qafqaz University continue activities directed to raising of Public Awareness on Information Security

The 1-st International Information Security Workshop

Azerbaijan, Baku, Qafqaz University
19 – 20 June 2012
http://ce.qu.edu.az/InfoSec

The Organizing Committee would like to invite all interested parties to attend the the 1-st International Information Security Workshop that will be held at the Qafqaz University in June 19 and 20, 2012 and co-organized by the Computer Engineering Department at the Qafqaz University (http://ce.qu.edu.az), BM Technologies (www.bmtech.az), BitDefender (www.bitdefender.com), Lancelot Institute (www.lancelotinstitute.com) and IEEE Computer Society Azerbaijan Chapter (http://chapters.computer.org/azerbaijan).

Workshop Statement:

Today, when cyber infrastructure has affected how we accomplish duties and job, how we get acquainted and communicate, how we teach and learn, how we entertain and spend time, etc. collecting and using personal, financial, governmental information, as well as the importance of protecting that information, is a complex challenge that has legal, business, political and technical ramifications.

The global cyber infrastructure has become the crucial environment for economic prosperity, government efficiency, and national security. At the same time the same environment which provides new inviting opportunities also makes possible new potential risks and threats. Protecting the vital information and critical infrastructure from cyberattacks becomes increasingly difficult and costly mission for governments, corporations, non-profit organizations, and even for citizens. Hacktivism, cyberwar, cyberweapons and their potential threats are becoming a reality.

It’s why high education research institutions, governments, businesses, public and private sector partners all together should work to find effective solutions to protect the confidentiality of sensitive information and resilience of national and global cyber infrastructure. We hope that the 1-st International Information Security Workshop would be successful example of such cooperation and will serve as a booster of public awareness and understanding of information security issues.

Posted by Abzetdin Adamov on April 26, 2012

Qafqaz University has became a Competent Member of International Information Security Research Consortium (IISRC)

Qafqaz University and Lomonosov Moscow State University's Institute of Information Security Issues have signed memorandum on collaboration in the framework of IISRC consortium

Sixth International forum “Partnership of State Authorities, Civil Society and the Business Community in Ensuring Information Security and Combating Terrorism” and Fifth Scientific Conference of the International Information Security Research Consortium (IISRC) have been held in April 23–26, 2012, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Munich, Germany.

The Qafqaz University as an institution pretending to be a member of IISRC consortium was represented there by Chair of Computer Engineering Department Dr. Abzetdin Adamov. The Qafqaz University also participated in last conference that was held in Changsha, China in October 25-27, 2011 and applied for consortium membership.

During the session dedicated to discussion of perspectives of the IISRC and applications of new potential members, the Qafqaz University’s application was supported by all active members. The additional agreement between Qafqaz University and Lomonosov Moscow State University’s Institute of Information Security Issues on collaboration in the framework of IISRC consortium has been signed.

Consequently, the Qafqaz University has approved its interest and concern about information security in the emerging cyber space. Moreover, the Computer Engineering Department at the Qafqaz University is planning to organize a trainings series in Information Security jointly with BitDefender, Lancelot Institute and several other institutions those that have main business in the area of Information Technologies.

In today’s interconnected world, collecting and using personal, financial, governmental information, as well as the importance of protecting that information, is a complex challenge that has legal, business and political ramifications. The global cyber infrastructure has become the crucial environment for economic prosperity, government efficiency, and national security. At the same time the same environment which provides new inviting opportunities also makes possible new potential risks and threats. Hacktivism, cyberwar, cyberweapons and their potential threats are becoming a reality.
Despite this potential threat for humanity, there is not a consensus and understanding on this issue among states and the international community. It’s why the role IISRC consortium as a global forum of sharing knowledge and ideas on cyber security is so important.

The conference has started with welcome speech of Dr. Sherstuyk V.P., Co-Chairman of the Forum, Adviser of the Security Council of Russian Federation, Director of Lomonosov Moscow State University Institute of Information Security Issues.
