Abstract: Big data analysis is definitely an urgent task for most information systems. Its importance and potentials can be found in many recent studies. They buzzed with this research issue because the data we collect and create are increasing at an unprecedented rate. Thus, the data analysis process has to be reconsidered. In this paper, we will first give a brief discussion of big data from different perspectives, such as size of data, characteristics of data, and source of data. Then, data mining and other information retrieval technologies for big data will be addressed. A brief review of other computational intelligence technologies for big data will also be given. Finally, open issues and future research trends using computational intelligence technologies are presented to show their potentials for big data.
Keywords: big data analysis; computational intelligence; data mining; information retrieval; soft computing; intelligent data analysis; information systems.
