Next-generation big data analytics tools will make sense of streaming data in real time

A new big data analytic tool being developed by computer scientists at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) will help businesses make sense, in real time, of the deluge of data that streams at them like water from a fire hose.

SETA could enable large businesses, social media sites, fraud detection centers, autonomous vehicle networks, governments, and other users to harness the continuous flow of big data as it streams in and transform it into actionable insights that could allow them to be increasingly responsive and competitive. “In a world where big data is continuously accelerating in volume and velocity, real-time streaming data analysis has become increasingly critical,” said Rundensteiner, an internationally recognized expert in scalable data stream processing.
