    ESWC 2011 Tutorial
    29 May 2011
  • Sensor Networks
    • Increasingavailability of cheap, robust, deployablesensors as ubiquitousinformationsources
    • Dynamic and reactive, butnoisy, and unstructured data streams

  • The Sensor Web
    • Sensor networksmaybenetworked, mostlywireless, hence global and integrated
    • Universal, web-based access to sensor data
    • Each network with some kind of authority and administration
    • Sensor networks vs robust networks

  • Most of you are computer scientists. Why is it worth working on this?
    • You may like helping scientists, or…
    • You want to address any of the following challenges in Computer Science:
    Scale, scalable
    Autonomic behaviour versus control
    Persistent, heterogeneous, evolving
    Deployment challenge
    Some mobile devices

  • A set of challenges in sensor data management
    • Data Provisioning
    Complexity of acquisition: distributed sources, data volumes, uncertainty, data quality, incompleteness
    Pre-processing incoming data: calibration on instruments (specific), lack of re-grid, calibration, gap-filling features
    Tools for data ingestion needed: generic, customizable, provide estimates, uncertainty degree, etc.
    • Spatial/temporal
    • Analysis, modeling
    Discovery: identify sources, metadata
    Data quality: gaps, faulty data, loss, estimates
    Analysis models
    Republish analytic results, computations, 
    Workflows for data stream processing

  • A set of challenges in sensor data management
    • Interoperability
    Data aggregation/integration
    • Uncertainty, data quality
    Noise, failures, measurement errors, confidence, trust
    • Distributed processing
    High volume, time critical
    Load management 
    Stream processing features
    Continuous queries
    Live & historical data
