Any idea where I can get source of current research topics on data streams with focus on real time applications.

  • This is likely a bit broad -- but there's also a problem that there are two different definitions of 'streaming' that might come up in this context -- '(Near) Real Time data', in which the data is being served as it comes in ... but there's also 'streaming protocols' to differentiate from data that's served as files over FTP/HTTP or similar. – Joe Sep 21 '15 at 19:48
  • Thanks Joe for the reply! I didn`t get the 'streaming protocols' part.. can you please elaborate further. I was actually thinking from real world applications perspective e.g. say what kind of problems I can give a shot at stock data or social media streams, etc. – Lesnar Sep 23 '15 at 16:34
  • Instead of moving data around as files, some communities have standards for connecting to a socket and issuing commands to select subsets of the data. Some of those communities refer to them as 'streaming protocols', as the data comes back as a stream, not as a file. (in some cases, you can also 'watch' for new data, so the protocol also supports NRT (near real time) data, so it'd fit both definitions of 'streaming'.) One example of a 'streaming protocol' would be OpenDAP. – Joe Sep 23 '15 at 17:40
  • @lesnar can you update your question with those additional information using the edit button. It will make it easier for other trying to help. – magdmartin Oct 1 '15 at 13:11
  • Well there is always the Internet of Things? Plenty of interesting research on efficiently managing these types of streaming data. – yods Oct 19 '15 at 21:56
