Data Science


Data in today’s business landscape are created and stored at exponentially large scales. Therefore, the need to improve business operations through data-driven decisions has emerged as an important objective for many growing companies. The field of data science addresses those needs by combining computer science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, and predictive modeling to generate analytical insights about data from a variety of sources.   Data often require a great amount of cleaning and pre-processing; so many research topics are also directed toward identifying different solutions for parallelized and distributed computing and data storage: from the big players in this market like Apache Hadoop and Spark through to CUDA. The field of data science interfaces with a variety of other disciplines, and by utilizing new computational technologies together with statistics and predictive modeling we strive to provide unique analytical insights from data at large scales.

Data Science research projects at SNET currently investigate data from the automotive, energy, and mobile communications domains. As such, we are often involved with the processing and analysis of geospatial data with both structured and unstructured formats.  Our goal is to discover the statistical relationships buried deep within data, and to use that knowledge as the framework for prototype development.

Abstract A proactive context-aware system automatically adapts its user interface to the user’s situational needs. This is achieved by continuously capturing the environmental properties, reasoning upon the context, and detecting situations where unsolicited adjustments are helpful or notifications informative. If the characteristics of those situations are well known in advance, their occurrence can be detected at runtime by the rule-based processing of raw sensor data. However, rule-based context reasoning methods determine the user’s situation mostly based on present sensor signals instead of considering the situation to be likewise the product of the past context. This article introduces a graph-based situation modeling formalism for the specification of system-relevant environmental circumstances as context flow graphs. A directed cyclic graph represents thereby the distinct contextual characteristics a user’s situation is made of and the temporal order in which these appear and disappear during the evolution of the situation. Complex situations for rule-based proactive context-aware systems can then be expressed at a high level of abstraction and without the need to understand the underlying sensor-related signal processing mechanisms. The technical feasibility is demonstrated by a prototypical distributed proactive context-aware middleware that, in addition, comes up with a web-based user interface for the interactive graphical and logical modeling of situations as context flow graphs.
