Biomedical Big Data Analytics: Challenges and Techniques
Voluminous datasets are being generated constantly in numerous domains of science and engineering. This is very much the case in biology and medicine. Efficient techniques are needed to process these data. In particular, we need tools to extract useful information from massive data sets. Society at large can benefit immensely from advances in this arena. For example, information extracted from biological data can result in gene identification, diagnosis for diseases, drug design, etc.
In this talk we present some challenges existing in processing biomedical big data. We also provide an overview of some basic techniques. In particular, we will summarize various data processing and reduction techniques.
