The Data Science Department at NEC Labs aims to build novel big data solutions to support complex system management for power plants, manufacture plants, transportation, social infrastructure  and so on.  With ubiquitous sensing and networking capability, those systems are now equipped with a large number of sensors distributed across different components, which collect a tremendous amount of data from system operation.  The goal of our research is to fully understand the dynamics of massive sensor data collected from complex systems and then build models or extract patterns to profile those systems.  We have built a number of analytic engines and solutions to analyze big data and support various applications in detection, prediction and optimization.  Our research lead to both award-winning NEC products and publications in top conferences.
