Data Science for CPS: Some Examples from Smart Buildings, Data Centers and Beyond

  • Speaker: Dr. Manish Marwah
  • Hewlett Packard Labs
  • Date: Friday, Feb. 24, 2017
  • Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm
  • Location: Room 325 (NVC)


Cyber-physical systems, built by integration of physical and computational elements, produce unprecedented amounts of data. Since these systems are complex and hard to model using first principles, data-driven models provide a promising alternative. In this talk, I will present our work on data science and its applications in improving sustainability of cyber-physical systems such as smart buildings and data centers. Specifically, I will talk about our work on energy disaggregation, meter placement in buildings, anomaly detection, short-term energy forecasting, and automating life-cycle assessment. Further, I will present some work on large scale data analytics in the context of smart meter and sensor data.
