At present, Big Data becomes reality that no one can ignore. Big Data is our environment whenever we need to make a decision. Big Data is a buzz word that makes everyone understand how important it is. Big Data shows a big opportunity for academia, industry and government. Big Data then is a big challenge for all parties. This talk will discuss some fundamental issues of Big Data problems, such as data heterogeneity vs. decision heterogeneity, data stream research and data-driven decision management. The talk will focus on various approaches based on optimization and intelligent knowledge. The optimization techniques include multiple criteria linear programming and multiple criteria quadratic programming. The intelligent knowledge is the research beyond traditional data mining. Furthermore, this talk will provide a number of real-life Bid Data Applications. In the conclusion, the talk suggests a number of open research problems in Data Science, which is a growing field beyond Big Data.
