Welcome back! We are glad to have Dr. Vijay Gurbani as our guest speaker for this week’s social hour on Friday, October 21 at 3:00PM in 369 CSL. This special session is titled as “Challenges in Big Data and Analytics in 5G”.

vijayBioVijay K. Gurbani is a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at Bell Laboratories‘ End-to-End Mobile Network Research department in Nokia Networks. He holds a B.Sc. in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics, a M.Sc. in Computer Science, both from Bradley University; and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Illinois Institute of Technology. His current work is focused on scalable analytic architectures and algorithms for autonomic 5G networks. His research interests are multimedia protocols, security and privacy in multimedia protocols, and open/inner source. Vijay’s research has resulted in products that are used in national and international service provider networks. He has over 60 publications in peer-reviewed conferences and journals, 5 books, 7 granted U.S. patents and 19 Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) RFCs.

Abstract: The 5G network is expected to be adaptive to the needs of users and applications. Driving the notion of adaptability is the implicit assumption that the billions of devices on the 5G network transmit data to be analyzed for adaptability. How big will this big data be? Will the data trickle in streams or will it burst through a hose? How will the models making sense of this data behave? Will they need to be changed? This informal talk will explore some of these issues by learning from the use of Big Data in today’s global networks and extrapolating how we may use Big Data frameworks in 5G.
