Subject: PLEASE ANNOUNCE TO YOUR CLASSES: ACM meeting on September 4

                  The GSU chapter of the ACM presents

                           Solar Data Mining

                          Dr. Rafal A. Angryk
                          Associate Professor
                    Department of Computer Science
                       Georgia State University

The focus of this talk is on big data analytics of the Solar Dynamics Observatory (, which is a flagship of NASA's current "Living with a Star" program. The audience will first learn about the importance of solar data analysis, then about the complexity of data maintained on the servers in our Data Mining Lab ( After that, three ongoing research projects will be introduced: (1) the Content-based Image Retrieval (CBIR) system for solar data, (2) the development of machine learning techniques for automated validation of NASA's software modules dedicated to the recognition of popular types of solar phenomena, and
(3) the search for spatio-temporal co-occurrence patterns among different types of solar activity. Finally, we will briefly talk about the future of our solar databases and data mining work, and the potential for new research funding.

About the Speaker: Dr. Angryk joined GSU's Department of Computer Science in August as an associate professor. Prior to that, he was an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at Montana State University and founding director of MSU's Data Mining Laboratory. He received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science in
2004 from Tulane University. His main research interests lie in the data mining area, and specifically in the challenge of new knowledge acquisition from real-life, massive databases.
