There is a lot of possible topics. You can choose to work on something more fundamental like algorithm design or something more applied such as how to best solve a given applied problem.
A good way of choosing a research problem is to look at some recent papers and find something that you are interested in. Personally, I am quite interested in pattern mining problems and algorithm design so this is usually the kind of topics that I choose in my research.
But it can take some time to find a good topic.
