Short abstract:

In this age, big data applications are increasingly becoming the main focus of attention because of the enormous increment of data generation and storage that has taken place in the last years, in science, business, ... This situation becomes a challenge when huge amounts of data are processed to extract knowledge because the data mining techniques are not adapted to the new space and time requirements. We must consider the new paradigms to develop scalable algorithms.

At this conference we will introduce briefly the big data technologies that have emerged strongly in recent years (Hadoop ecosystem, Spark, …), the use of computational intelligence approaches in big data together with big data preprocessing techniques. We will pay attention to applications in various fields, showing some cases of study.
