Special Issue on: "New Technologies in the Big Data Era"

Guest Editor:
Dr. Zhigao Zheng, Central China Normal University, China

In the era of big data, the complexity of data analysis and information extraction has grown dramatically. There is an increasing demand for scalable solutions that can handle the storage and acquisition bandwidth of current sensing and data analysis systems. Every discussion on big data usually includes a passing reference to the ubiquity of sensors: as we collect more data through sensors, we'll need tools to take advantage of data. The focus has been primarily on the tools that help you store and manage, visualise and summarise, and finally, analyse and make sense of big data collections. Since the leading big data innovators have tended to be web companies, data acquisition has often involved data exhaust or crawled data. The mechanics and details of collecting data from the physical world have garnered less attention.

Rather than store and discard many signals/measurements, it would be more efficient if one can acquire only the necessary signals to begin with. Nowadays, to keep abreast with the development in computational technologies, the big data processing system and the information management system have undergone a great change with the new computation method is getting more popular and the internet technology has also evolved swiftly, the new method has impact on the big data processing and information management system changes.
