As planet evolves, an increasingly connected ecosystem of heterogeneous devices produces more volumes and variety of digital data. They range from devices-in-the-fog to insanely complicated machineries looking with ever increasing precision to “the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything”. To keep up with the pace, very large volumes of dynamically changing data ought to be processed, synthesised, and eventually turned into knowledge. High-velocity data brings high value, especially to volatile business processes, mission-critical tasks and scientific grand challenges. Some of this data loses its operational value in a short time frame, some other is simply too much to be stored. Ultimately, any forecast on tomorrow must arrive by tomorrow.
This is the ground where the data science meets high-performance computing.
