应计算机学院邀请，美国UTA（The University of Texas at Arlington）计算机工程系杰出教授江泓，将于2016年6月16日（周四）上午来计算机学院举行学术报告，欢迎广大师生参加。
演讲主题： Providing Computer Systems Support for Big Data
Digital data produced in the last two years alone amounts to 90% of the digital data in the world today! This phenomenal growth and ubiquity of data has ushered in an era of “Big Data”, which brings with it new challenges as well as opportunities. In this talk, I will first briefly discuss big data challenges facing and opportunities for computer and storage systems research. I will then present some recent solutions proposed by my research group that seek to address the performance and space issues facing big data and data-intensive applications by means of data reduction.
Hong Jiang received the B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering in 1982 from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China; the M.A.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering in 1987 from the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada; and the PhD degree in Computer Science in 1991 from the Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, USA. He is currently Chair and Wendell H. Nedderman Endowed Professor of Computer Science and Engineering Department at the University of Texas at Arlington. Prior to joining UTA, he served as a Program Director at National Science Foundation (2013.1-2015.8) and he was at University of Nebraska-Lincoln since 1991, where he was Willa Cather Professor of Computer Science and Engineering. His present research interests include computer architecture, computer storage systems and parallel I/O, high-performance computing, big data computing, cloud computing, performance evaluation. He has over 200 publications in major journals and international Conferences in these areas, and his research has been supported by NSF, DOD, the State of Texas and the State of Nebraska. Dr. Jiang is a Fellow of IEEE, and Member of ACM.
