Research

The goal of our research is to build highly responsive intelligent information systems to provide pervasive information services all the time, everywhere, on all varieties of data. The main research areas include data & knowledge base systems for information management, cloud computing and big data systems for high availability and scalability, mobile & pervasive computing for pervasive access, parallel & distributed processing for effective and real-time performance, artificial intelligence techniques for intelligent responses. We have identified key enabling technologies among these fields as the building blocks for our research goal. In particular, mobile and cloud data management, big data analytics, dynamic coordination techniques, service oriented architecture, as well as the universal access and personalization technologies are the foundations for providing advanced and ubiquitous information services to clients all the time, everywhere, by any means. Mobile data management, mobile cloud services, big data mining, RFID data management middleware, cross enterprise ECommerce and personalized information services are selected as the main application domains for experimenting our ideas.
