Smarter software for a smarter planet

How to manage Big Data in research: a workshop of ICON Foundation and IBM Italy.

Big data is a term applied to data sets whose size is beyond the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, manage, and process the data within a tolerable elapsed time. However, the speed at which any given scientific discipline advances will depend on how well its researchers collaborate with one another, and with technologists, in areas related to Big Data Analytics, such as data integration and interoperation, smart analytics, distributed computing infratstructures, public/private cloud, dedicated grids, High Performance computing workflow, visualization, etc.

Many scientific domains today are confronted with data intensive needs (astronomy, meteorology, complex physics simulations, biological and environmental research, Internet search, finance, etc.). Whithin the ICON Foundation that organized this workshop, the Big Data issues are generated in the domains of connectomics, neuroscience, pharmacology and medical imaging.
