Topic: Intelligent cross-data analytics and retrieval

Speaker: Minh-Son Dao, National Institute of Information and Communication Technology


Cross-data analytics and retrieval have attracted significant attention recently. People can now extract more data insights precisely and quickly towards having many excellent applications serving human lives. Nevertheless, people create multimedia and other types of data that reflect the diverse perspectives of human lives. In other words, multimedia and other data types are just pieces of the puzzle of the world’s pictures. Hence, it is necessary to assembly all these pieces towards having a better solution for human-centered problems. This lecture aims to share experiences, especially xDataPlatform developed by NICT, of making cross-data more intelligent by compensating each type of data’s strengths to propose a new way to analyze and retrieve cross-data under different perspectives.
