Big Data concerns large-volume, complex, growing data sets with multiple, autonomous sources. With the fast development of networking, data storage, and the data collection capacity, Big Data is now rapidly expanding in all science and engineering domains, including physical, biological and social sciences. This talk introduces a HACE theorem that characterizes the features of the Big Data revolution, and discusses a Big Data processing model, from the data mining perspective. Our recent research efforts in mining streaming data and streaming features are also presented in the Big Data context.Bio:
