Big data research is the key element to help Viet Nam boost the Internet of Things (IoT) and apply smart urban technology, the rector of the Korea-Viet Nam Friendship Information Technology College, Hoang Bao Hung, said at the opening of the 7th International Conference on Information Science and Technology (ICTST) in Da Nang yesterday.

“It’s one of the most important IT events hosted by Viet Nam. Researches and reports on big data, databases and computer science will give Vietnamese partners an opportunity to share experience of top experts from top universities,” Hung said.

He said Da Nang would be a destination for regular IT conferences that lure top international experts sharing latest technology.

Some 125 reports from 25 countries and territories will be presented to 1,300 participants at the two-day event on big data, databases, smart systems, education and IT applications.

Viet Nam has sent 30 reports – the largest of any participant – on big data, databases, visible light communications and wireless sense security communications networks.

Professor Sam Kwong from the City University of Hong Kong said research on big data and computer science has a vital role in the internet era, and the conference will help establish Viet Nam’s relationship with IT worldwide.

It’s expected that at least 84 reports will be accepted at the conference, and the best will be selected for publication by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) – the conference’s technical sponsor.

Scientists from the Da Nang-based Korea-Viet Nam Friendship Information Technology College also sent five reports on databases, visible light wireless internet (wireless integrated with light-emitting diodes), visible wireless sense systems and quality improvement of wireless systems and network security.

The conference includes sessions on topics such as computer science, control and automatisation system technology, digital signal processing, IT in biology and biomedical engineering, speech coding, unsupervised learning and brain computer interfaces, as well as the robotic industry, smart production, navigation, smart systems in health care as well as car and motor sense control. — VNS
