Title :Processing of streaming data: challenges and solutions

Streaming analytics is playing an important role in solving problems in various domains, e.g., monitoring climate, fraud detection, and health management. Thus, generating a scalable and flexible architecture for analysis of streaming data is critical to success of many endeavours. However, no general model to tackle this task exists. In this talk, we will discuss challenges (such as scalability, maintainability, and privacy preservation) and potential solutions to these challenges.
