Research and Application areas:


Research Area 1: Data Modeling and Management
Data modeling refers to design and development of commonly used data formats that can be used to store, exchange, retrieve and/or analyze data. It ranges from simple database design, object-oriented programming, to ontologies, semantics, and many more. Data modeling and management involves progression from abstract and conceptual models to descriptive and logical model and eventually to concrete and physical schemas.

Potential project topics may include:
  1. Formal modeling of data
  2. Ontologies
  3. Metadata
  4. Cataloguing and Organization
  5. Semantic Web
  6. Knowledge Graphs
  7. Complex Event Modeling and Processing
  8. Semantic Rules
  9. Natural Language Modeling and Processing
  10. And many more …
Research Area 2: Big Data Analytics
Big data analytics includes processing of data that is huge in volume, velocity and variety (i.e., big data) to uncover hidden yet interesting patterns, unknown correlations, trends, outliers, preferences and other useful information that may help organizations make intelligent and more-informed decisions.

Potential project topics may include:
  1. Probabilistic Reasoning in Big Data
  2. Big Data Clustering in Big Data
  3. Classification and Prediction in Big Data
  4. Association Rule Mining and Learning in Big Data
  5. Text Analytics in Big Data
  6. Multimedia analysis in Big Data
