The University of Technology Sydney has launched a new cross-faculty Advanced Analytics Institute (UTS: AAI) to develop education and research on future applications and management of Big Data.

Led by Professor Longbing Cao, an IT and telecommunications engineer with research experience at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the new institute is hosting seminars and research projects to develop valuable applications of behaviour informatics, data mining, machine learning, complex intelligent systems, multimedia analytics, multi-agent systems and agent mining.

The AAI hosts on Friday afternoons a public lecture series with guest speakers explaining today’s most advanced research challenges and breakthroughs.

And its leaders are hosting a series of Big Data seminars in Brisbane, Sydney and Canberra over the second week of April 2013.
