In the context of tackling the Big Data problems that exhibit high-volume, high-velocity, and high-complexity, I will present several scenarios to show how to exploit the benefits of self-organized computing, e.g., Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC), in which autonomous entities locally and asynchronously interact with their environment, actively carrying out information exchanges and utility updates based on nature-inspired behavioral rules. Through positive feedback and collective regulation, the interactions of the entities will result in desirable solutions or patterns, non-linearly generated at certain spatial and temporal scales. The fundamental working mechanisms of self-organization that underlie such an approach readily offer the advantages of scalable and robust performance (For additional information on Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC), see

Speaker’s Biography

Jiming Liu is Chair Professor in Computer Science and Associate Dean of Faculty of Science (Research & Graduate Studies) at Hong Kong Baptist University. He obtained his Master-of-Engineering and PhD degrees from McGill University, Montreal, Canada. He has conducted research in multi-agent systems, autonomy-oriented computing (AOC), Web intelligence (WI), and most recently, data-driven complex systems engineering (e.g., systematic approaches to disease control and intervention; characterizing and improving the robustness of energy distribution networks). He is a Fellow of IEEE. Jiming has served as Editor-in-Chief of Web Intelligence and Agent Systems, Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part B, and Computational Intelligence, etc., and Editorial Board member of several other journals.
