Talk abstract:

The competition in the video game industry has reached a point where the need to use new methods and technologies to remain in this competition is inevitable. One of these methods is the use of Game Analytics(GA) sciences to understand the players' tastes, interests and engagement factors better and to adapt the various components of the video game based on it. But the big challenge in this area is how to process a huge amount of games logs as well as players behavioral data with different structures in massively multiplayer online games(MMOGs) especially in real time manner. In this lecture, firstly, we will briefly talk about current issues in GA approaches and also introduce some related Big Data methods and technologies, and then we will determine how to use Big Data technologies for common cases of GA such as Players profiling and modeling.
