The leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, Huawei is thrilled to invite students from across Poland to take part in this year’s European University Challenge 2020!
This almost 2-week digital event will challenge participants with Data Reduction Algorithms!
Working independently, students will design and implement a similarity identification algorithm to improve the data reduction ratio.
Similarity deduplication algorithm is a typical storage algorithm to find the similar data segments among a lot of data blocks, and call the compression methods to shrink the storage space the data would occupy.
Identifying the data blocks containing similar segments in a large data set is the key for the algorithm. Students should aim to design and implement an intuitive mechanism to help identify these data blocks, and thereafter improve the data reduction ratio compared to the baseline algorithm.
To participate, students must be enrolled in a Polish university and working towards their Bachelor's, Master's or PhD. International students who are completing an exchange or participating in an Erasmus program in Poland are also welcome to take part.
