Coping with science’s data deluge

Posted by on in Related News

According to an article published on Projects, we have now entered the age of big data, but at present we are struggling to cope with the amount we are producing. Laurence Field explains how the CRISP project is helping researchers to make sense of this information overload.

When people refer to big data or a data deluge in science, the terms are entirely appropriate. As scientific detectors and research instruments improve at a fantastic rate, we as a community are producing more and more of it. The Large Hadron Collider at CERN, even before its current upgrade, was producing 200,000 DVDs’ worth of raw data a second, and the Square Kilometre Array radio telescope project is expected to produce 400 gigabytes a second.

iMENTORS version three went live today and is one step closer to mapping the majority of e-infrastructure (resources, tools and data supporting community research and development) of the past five years in Sub-Saharan Africa in order to lay a foundation for better services, encourage research and connect cross-continental progress. The aim of iMENTORS is to help scientists, universities, research and education networks as well as policy-makers and international funders to gain valuable insights on the gaps and progress made in the region and to identify synergies when planning future ICT initiatives within the African continent.

According to an article published on isgtw, Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, together with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC), and the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, Pennsylvania, US, have developed a new version of their agent-based modeling system for epidemic dynamics. The large-scale modeling program, known as FRED (Framework for Reconstructing Epidemiological Dynamics), enables researchers to investigate and understand the possible courses of future epidemics – and how they might control and alleviate them.
