Big Data Analytics

Big Data Analytics

The applications for Big Data Analytics seemingly are endless, and the capability to rapidly process massive chunks of data and make sense of the results will continue to be paramount. MU College of Engineering researchers are at the forefront of Big Data-related research, using cloud computing resources to produce results in a wide array of areas, including healthcare, disaster safety and relief, life sciences, pattern recognition, deep learning and more.

  • The College is home to the Center for Geospatial Intelligence. Led by Curt Davis in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), 21 affiliated faculty from multiple disciplines have worked on equally diverse projects including satellite, airborne, and ground-based remote sensing; advanced geospatial data processing and production; and automated feature extraction, among others.
  • The Data Science program’s collaboration with the College of Engineering’s Center for Geospatial Intelligence led to an ongoing $12 million contract to train data scientists for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). The Center for Geospatial Intelligence has more than a decade-long history of working with the NGA.

Deep learning, image recognition, image analysis, object detection: The College of Engineering is shaping the future of how these and other computer vision technologies will be used. MU researchers have won multiple awards and earned high-profile grants for object detection technology as well as novel methods of using computer vision to detect and classify cancer, aid first responders in disaster situations and more.

Cybersecurity is crucial in this era of advanced technology, and the College of Engineering is leading the way in improving security capabilities. Mizzou students finished second in the Southeastern Conference Student Cyber Challenge, which tasked SEC student teams with tackling a real-world cybersecurity scenario. And researchers across the spectrum of big data and cloud computing focus areas are working on federally-funded projects to improve the state of cybersecurity to secure national priority applications in homeland security, healthcare, industrial control systems and informatics.
