3Sensor BigData Digitized World Drowning in Vast Amount of Data Nowadays, we live in a digitized world. Almost everything we do, creates a record stored somewhere, whether we are calling a friend, purchasing gas, connecting to Internet, or monitoring any other social activities.Sensor is a tiny device to be used to record those signals in the “real world” and send them as structured and unstructured data to the intelligent system. The data is wildly used on Social Networks, which are made up of countless social actors. Moreover, The increasing volume and detail of data captured by sensors, is so large that it's difficult to process using traditional techniques.It's clear to see the whole process can be divided into two parts: Data collection and the attendant Data analysis.One problems is, when sensor collecting data, how to save resource and improve the performance of sensor system. Another problem is how to deal with the giant data in real time? Specifically, on social networks.3

6Have you watched movie Twister? tornadoIn the movie, a team of storm chasers tries to deploy their data-gathering Instrument (i.e., a can of hundreds of sensors), into the funnel of a tornado, to study its structure from the inside, and eventually design an advanced storm warning system.So, we can see sensor is an important tool to collect data.People may think Story in movies is kinda far away from our life. So you may wonder where are the sensors in the reality world.Bucket ofsensorssensor6
7Where are all the sensors? Smartphone with a dozen of sensorsFirstly, the Smartphone that we can’t survive without is equipped with a dozen of sensors. Can you name one? Bluetooth, GPS, wifi, temperature, accelerometer,…7
8Where are all the sensors? Wearable devices- Google Glass, Apple’s iWatchMore and more wearables are being developed, including Google Glass or Apple’s iWatch. To spend $1500, you can have your agenda and appointment notes ready at a glance, dictate your text messages and save your time for other tasks.8
9Where are all the sensors? BuildingsIn this buildings, We can also find an array of sensors such as Webcam, AC controller, alarm system…9
10Where are all the sensors? Transportation systems, etcAll kinds of transportation systems, including public traffic, as part of smart cities.Sensor in vehicle receives GPS coordinates in real-time and sends them to the tracking company via a cellular data service.10
11Sensor Web Large # of simple sensors Usually deployed randomly Multi-hop wireless linkDistributed routingNo infrastructureCollect data and send it to base stationWhen lots of sensors are deployed in a certain area to act and coordinate as a whole to monitor environmental, it’s called sensor web, also sensor network. Among wireless sensors, they use have wireless links with distributed routing.and they can self organize into a connected communication network without infrastructure.11
14BUT… What’s Sensor? Small size Large number Tether- less The technology is improving everyday. Sensor size is getting smaller.BUT…14
15What’s limiting the task? Energy, Sense, Communication scale, CPU...Due to the available technology, usually sensors are battery powered, which limits the performance of network. Each operation brings the sensor closer to death. It has to keep listening to make sure that it does not lose any data and therefore cannot power down entirely to save energy when it has nothing to do. This scenario can dramatically limit the battery autonomy of the node, demanding that batteries be replaced or recharged regularly. However, under some hostile environment, like the volcanic surrounding area, battery replacement is impossible.And also, each sensor has a limited sensing range and communication range. Anything out of its reach, cannot be sensed by it.CPU. Sensor has to pass data to the base station for analysis.15

20Min-Connected Sensor Cover Problem It’s NP-hard!Previous Work for PTASΟ(r ln n) – approximation given by Gupta, Das and Gu [MobiHoc’03, 2003], where n is the number of sensors and r is the link radius of the sensor network.

39Outline Data Collection in Sensor System Data Analysis On Social NetworksKate Middleton Effect, Search cheap ticketFinal Remarks
40“The small world network is a type of mathematical graph in which most nodes are not neighbors of one another, but most nodes can be reached from every other by a small number of hops or steps.”In this talk, we will discuss two projects, Effective Data collection in sensor web and the attendant big data revolution in data networks.40
41Social Network: A New Frontier Most of social networks are small world networks with large size.is a type of mathematical graph in which most nodes are not neighbors of one another, but most nodes can be reached from every other by a small number of hops or steps.41
42Six Steps of Separation Milgram (1967)The experiment:Random people from Nebraska were to send a letter (via intermediaries) to a stock broker in Boston.Could only send to someone with whom they know.Among the letters that foundthe target, the average number of steps was six.Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away. People did lots of experiment research on it.Stanley Milgram ( )It’s a small world after all!!!42
43Six Steps of Separation FriendFriendRoommateFamilyFriendInterviewerSupervisorFriendBut, you may have a shorter route to XX, which would shrink my distance from this rich guy.A chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.FamilyFriend43
45Increasing Popularity There are lots of significant research on data analysis on social networks.45
46Usage Example 1 “Kate Middleton Effect The trend effect that Kate, Duchess of Cambridge has on others, from cosmetic surgery for brides, to sales of coral-colored jeans.”“Kate Middleton EffectDuchess of Cambridge, Kate, is a fashion icon who leads in fashion circles.46
47Hike in Sales of Special Products According to Newsweek, "The Kate Effect may be worth £1 billion to the UK fashion industry."Tony DiMasso, L. K. Bennett’s US president, stated in 2012, "...when she does wear something, it always seems to go on a waiting list."
48How to Find Kate? Influential Person Kate is one of the persons that have many friends in this social network.For more kates, it’s not as easy as you might think!
49Find More Kate? Challenge: an overall consideration of influence For example, Positive Influence, Influence Maximization, Influence MinimizationWhen there are more Kates, an overall consideration about influence may be required.Therefore, the following concept was proposed.Different Models, different problems…49
50Influence Maximization Given kFind k seeds (Kates)to maximize the number of influenced persons.
51Influence Maximization # of influenced nodes is 6.51
52Influence Maximization # of influenced nodes is 6.# of influenced nodes is 16.52
53Ongoing Research Initial Result “Better Approximations for Influence Maximization in Online Social Networks” Journal of Combinatorial Optimization, 2013 (with Weili Wu, et al.)雇佣一定数目的kate, 总共影响的更多。。。Semidi programming….53
54Usage Example 2 Search Cheap Ticket There are about 28,537 commercial flights in the sky in the U.S. on any given day.Kate, Duchess of Cambridge has on others, from cosmetic surgery for brides, to sales of coral-colored jeans.The fashion choices of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, have already brought an astounding $1.5 billion into the British economy,54
55How to find cheap ticket? It is a shortest path problem in a big data network.
60Challenge Time VS Price If searching area is larger, then searching needs more time, but ticket price may be cheaper.Hard to do it in real-timeBetter software is neededThe main issue here is the conflict of searching time and ticket price.Better software leads to success of a business.60
