Event description

Description

Knowledge discovery has been driven by theory, experiments and by large-scale simulations on supercomputers. Modern instruments and sensors (including humans) are creating massive amounts of data at an astonishing speed and diversity. This has the potential to transform speed of discovery accelerating the pace of innovation in materials to marketing and many things in between. This talk will (1) address the role of combining supercomputing and big data analytics, and (2) present important examples of our times that include materials design, climate change understanding to marketing innovations. The talk will discuss both science discoveries and business cases.
