Big Data: Where from? Where to?
Dr. Prof. Hanmin Jung
Head of the Dept. of S/W research
Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information
Big Data is one of the hottest topics in Korea and the world, and also practical issue to such an extent as to be created and stored more than 1.8 zettabytes of information in 2011. But, many people are concerned only with data-related technologies such as Hadoop and NoSQL, since they are easily available as open source and moreover conference organizers and publishers do not fully understand the real value of Big Data. Thus, I’d like to give some fundamental answers and examples on the following questions: Where are Big Data from? Where are the data? Who consume the data? Who can become ‘The Next Big Thing’?
As another issue of this presentation, KISTI’s recent R&D activities and results, especially for supporting R&D planning, on Big Data that push researchers into the limits in science & technology area will be introduced. We are currently developing technology intelligence services that can discover emerging technologies and businesses based on technology opportunity discovery models and can uncover complex relationships among technologies and R&D actors gathered and acquired from huge amount of papers, patents, and internet articles.
Hanmin Jung works as the head of the Dept. of S/W research and chief researcher at Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), Korea since 2004.
He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from POSTECH, Korea in 1992, 1994, and 2003.
Previously, he was senior researcher at Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), Korea, and worked as CTO at DiQuest Inc, Korea,
Now, he is also adjunct professor at University of Science & Technology (UST), Korea, executive director at Korea Contents Association, and committee member of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC32 and ISO/IEC JTC1/SC34.
His current research interests include decision making support mainly based in the Semantic Web and text mining technologies, Big Data, information retrieval, human-computer interaction (HCI), data analytics, and natural language processing (NLP).
For these research areas, over 250 papers and 200 patents have been published and created.

Professor Kevin Ryan – Lero – the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre
A Case Study of Research and Technology Transfer
Many people talk of translational research and suggest that every piece of research should lead eventually and predictably to a commercially successful product. This may be the ideal but it rarely happens in practice. This talk reviews one instance where it did happen. An exceptionally capable and motivated PhD student identified a new area of research in the field of Requirements Engineering (RE) namely the problem of setting priorities between requirements when, as is often the case, resources are limited but demands are not. Prior work in other fields was transferred and improved, with the help of industrial collaborators. The work led to a number of influential publications, a successful spin-off company and contributed to a leading commercial toolset.
This talk reviews how this was achieved and reflects on the factors that made it possible.
Professor Kevin Ryan is Emeritus Professor of Information Technology at the University of Limerick and was founding Director (2005-2010) of Lero – the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre (www.lero.ie) Lero is a partnership of academic and industrial organisations who aim to advance the quality and quantity of software engineering research being conducted in Ireland. Since 2004 Lero has attracted funding of over €40m, mainly from Science Foundation Ireland, and involves researchers at DCU, TCD and UCD as well as at UL. From 1999 to 2004 Kevin Ryan was Vice President Academic and Registrar at the University
of Limerick. During this period he played a major role in expanding UL’s academic portfolio to include Architecture, Health Sciences and Medicine.
Kevin Ryan holds degrees of BA (Maths & Economics), BAI (Engineering) and PhD (Computer Science) from Trinity College Dublin and is a fellow of both the Irish Computer Society and the Institute of Engineers of Ireland. Over the past 35 years he has lectured and researched on software topics in universities and industry in Ireland, the UK, the USA, Africa and Sweden. He has been an adviser to the Irish government on the development of the Irish software industry
and has acted as consultant to industry and to international funding bodies. He has published papers on software engineering methods and tools, software requirements engineering and on the role of technology in development. He served on the editorial board of 3 journals. He has been a director of a number of start-up software companies.
