Real-Time Data: Uses and Challenges of Data Streaming for Research


Real-time data is information delivered immediately; depending on the need, the use of data streams can keep research up to date for immediate accuracy and depth in analysis, or continually updating earlier data for shared visualizations such as data dashboards—like COVID-19 data trackers. This panel will showcase examples of research projects at UNCW involving real-time, near real-time, or batch processing. It will highlight benefits and challenges for its use, and break down various conditions and practices involved when using real-time data, including the set-up, collection, analysis, and maintenance of the data.
