OCC at IEEE Big Data Conference
Maria Patterson, scientific lead for the Open Science Data Cloud and a researcher at UChicago working on the OCC's Project Matsu, will be attending the IEEE Big Data Service and Applications conference this week at Exeter College, Oxford, UK. This conference will bring together a wide variety of researchers focused on innovations in big data computing, service sharing, and big data applications in energy and environment, medical and healthcare, library, social media and networking, and education. The conference is also held in conjunction with several other IEEE conferences, including the 10th International IEEE Symposium on Service-Oriented System Engineering (SOSE), the 4th International Conference on Mobile Cloud Computing, Services, and Engineering, the IEEE International Symposium on Creative Computing (ISCC), the IEEE International Symposium on Software Crowdsourcing (ISSC), and the Second International Workshop On Education in the Cloud.
Dr. Patterson will be presenting on Thursday during the Big Data in energy and then environment applications track about Project Matsu's work analyzing satellite imagery from NASA's Earth Observing-1 satellite using an "analytic wheel," which is an efficient reanalysis framework for large datasets. The Matsu Wheel allows many shared data services to be performed together to efficiently use resources for processing hyperspectral satellite image data and other, e.g., large environmental datasets that may be analyzed for many purposes. For more information about Project Matsu see the Matsu website or the arXiv paper on the Matsu Wheel.
