Summary: Data owners increasingly expose their data to others to consume and analyse, but many analytics need to be done over a variety of federated data sources without moving all the data into a centralised data platform. Distributed data mining and machine learning research, in the past, have addressed some of the issues. However, there are a number of new challenges including adapting to heterogeneous environments cross different data owners, cross-cluster/data centres, Hadoop/Spark based systems, data source variety and real time streams. This collaborative research project will devise advanced analytics over a data platform that can deal with federated data sources and streams without needing to hold all data in the platform. This includes new algorithm designs for both primitive operations (e.g. tensor / matrix factorisation) and high-level data analytics and mining (e.g. graph mining, ensemble learning) for such scenarios.
