Data is everywhere, and is being used in all sorts of ways to derive valuable information.  Data is being generated, stored, managed and analyzed all around us at unprecedented rates.  This data has huge VOLUME, arrives at a very high VELOCITY and comes in a VARIETY of different forms and shapes, and is being used by very diverse applications. In fact, big data has become indispensable in as diverse fields as physics, political science, commerce, social science and geographic applications.  The 3 “V”s (Volume, Velocity and Variety) have caused fundamental challenges to the ways traditional data management systems are designed and implement as well as how data is consumed and analyzed. They have also given rise to the era of large globally dispersed data centers. In this talk, we will provide an overview of some of the basic principles of Big Data, and will explore the volume challenges they pose to traditional data management systems.  We will then discuss some of the velocity research challenges that big data present in large Social media, especially to understand, manage and analyze the diffusion of information in diverse settings.
