Applications associated with streaming data and related real-time machine learning, steering and control are of growing interest and importance. The analysis of data streaming from on-line instruments, large scale simulations, and Internet of Things (IoT), an enormous amount of distributed sensors now enables near real-time steering and control of complex systems such as scientific experiments, transportation systems, and urban environments. STREAM-ML has the potential to provide more timely access to information and raise the quality and pace of decision making and, consequently, performance. There has been an explosion of new research and technologies for stream analytics arising from the academic and private sectors. We need to research steering scenarios involving active learning. Steering, which is inevitably real-time, might include realigning experimental sensors, control of autonomous vehicle or changing progress of simulations.

Advances in ML techniques, such as Deep Learning and neural networks, are the main enablers of knowledge work automation. Natural user interfaces, such as speech and image recognition are also highly benefiting from ML technologies. Compared to the economic impact of machine learning, next frontier is knowledge work automation that asserts the more attention toward the extraction of value out of data.

Call for Papers

Members of the community are invited to submit a paper (6 pages for a full paper or 2 pages for an extended abstract) in areas of relevance to STREAM-ML's scope and objectives. The paper format is a two-column IEEE Conference Style. Papers must be electronically submitted using the submission system accessible on CyberChair.

All papers accepted will be included in the IEEE Big Data Conference Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper at the workshop for the paper to be included in the conference proceedings. Details on the registration will be posted on the main conference's page.

Stay Updated!

We have a few things that we will be announcing in the coming weeks and months. Stay updated on program details, dates, events and people.
