Title: BigData Driven Knowledge Discovery for Autonomic Future Internet
Abstract: Autonomic Future Internet(AFI) coupled with the emerging SDN/NFV technologies is regarded as a promisingand viable solution for addressing many grand challenges faced by 5G, such asexplosive growth of network data traffic, massive increase in the number ofinterconnected devices, and continuous emergence of new services andapplications. The ambition of AFI is to exploit an autonomic, intelligent andself-managing Future Internet with consequent improvement in network efficiencyand performance, increased profitability, and reduced OPEX and CAPEX. Two keyfeatures of AFI are self-management and cognitive learning; the former isessential for complexity reduction and fast adaptation to changing situationsand the latter can increase the intelligence through flexible knowledgeutilization.
In this talk, we willpresent state-of-the-art network architecture for AFI that is seamlesslyintegrated with SDN and NFV. The core Knowledge Plane within this unifiedarchitecture is responsible for real-time network big data analysis andknowledge discovery in order to maintain high-level behaviors of how thenetwork should be configured, managed, and optimized. To establish a powerful,flexible and scalable Knowledge Plane in AFI, we will present the innovativebig data processing technologies and cost-effective platform developed in ourresearch group, including the unified representation of heterogeneous networkbig data and real-time incremental data analysis tools for extracting valuableinsights to support better decision making for network design, resourcemanagement and optimization. This talk offers the theoretical underpinning forefficient processing of big data, and also opens up a new horizon of researchand development by exploiting the key intelligence and insights hidden in richnetwork big data for design and improvement of Future Internet.
