DS - Researcher 

Location Princeton, NJ  
Department Data Science 


The Data Science and Systems Research Department at NEC Labs aims to build novel big data solutions and service platforms that simplify complex computer systems management, and to develop new information technology that supports innovative applications, from big data analytics to the Internet of Things. Our research is both experimental and theoretical, covering many domains in data science and system research, such as: time series mining, graph mining, deep learning, text mining, anomaly detection, signal processing, cloud computing, data centers, software-defined networking and streaming processing.

The goal of our research is to fully understand the dynamics of big data from complex systems, retrieve patterns to profile them and build innovative solutions to help end user managing those systems. We have built a number of analytic engines and system solutions to process and analyze big data and support various applications in detection, prediction and optimization. Our research leads to both award-winning NEC products and publications in top conferences.
