The GSU chapter of the ACM presents
Applying Data Science and Big Data Analysis to Solar Data

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

In this talk we give an overview of interdisciplinary research projects related to solar data analysis that are being conducted at Georgia State University. We will provide the audience with an update on progress made by our lab on big data cleaning, analysis of images, spatio-temporal patterns mining, and temporal data analysis. We will talk about a few up-to-date data mining methodologies and their relevance for big data-driven solar physics re-search.

Mack Robinson College of Business. Dr. Angryk is the founding director of the GSU Data Mining Lab<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fdmlab.cs.gsu.edu%2F&data=02%7C01%7Cjhayes14%40gsu.edu%7C92c09fe493744f9ae93008d67fd1492e%7C515ad73d8d5e4169895c9789dc742a70%7C0%7C0%7C636836934196208591&sdata=1NCzUEjvXLmZ22jF3p8I7jlV7h4TVl9QLsnD4M0%2F5Wc%3D&reserved=0> and conducts interdisciplinary and collaborative research on massive repositories of scientific data. Dr. Angryk's research and teaching interests lie in the areas of big data (spatial, spatio-temporal databases, and scientific and medical image repositories), data science (frequent patterns discovery, clustering and classification of real-life big data), and information retrieval (kNN indexing of high-dimensional data coming from text and image repositories). He has published over 140 journal articles, book chapters, and peer-reviewed conference papers in these areas. His research has been sponsored by federal agencies (NASA, NSF, and NGA) and industry (Intergraph Corporation and RightNow Technologies [now part of Oracle]), with a successful grant history exceeding $12M.
