A Lunch & Learn Round Table Discussion Meeting

“Spark-Based Seismic Data Analytics Cloud”


Lei Huang, Ph.D. - Assistant Professor, Prairie View A&M University



Apache Spark is a scalable parallel processing engine designed for big data analytics. Academic research has expanded Spark to support seismic data analytics in the Cloud Computing Lab led by Dr. Lei Huang at Prairie View A&M University northwest of Houston, part of the Texas A&M University System. Dr. Lei Huang will give an overview of the work that he and his students are doing in providing a scalable Cloud Computing PaaS (Platform as a Service) for seismic data processing and analytics. The Cloud provides users capability of storing large amount of seismic data; hiding parallelism complexity from users by creating a high-level templates-based programming environment; building, running and monitoring jobs based on the Spark engine; and embedding sophisticated data analytics algorithms based on image processing and seismic processing packages. All of these Cloud services are delivered to users via a user-friendly web interface to allow anytime, anywhere and any-device access. This work is built on top of the NSF-sponsored Image Processing Cloud project led by Prairie View A&M University, and collaborated with University of Houston (UH) and University of Delaware (UD).


Dr. Huang is currently an Assistant Professor of Computer Science Department in the College of Engineering at Prairie View A&M University. He has obtained his PhD at University of Houston in 2006 with research focusing on HPC and parallel programming models. He had several years’ experience in research and development of parallelizing seismic data processing and interpretation software.
