Attendees from around the world -- including national and university labs and supercomputing centers in Japan, China, Saudi Arabia, Spain and the United States -- brainstormed strategies to converge Big Data and the high-performance computing tools necessary to make sense of massive data sets. Just how big is Big Data? In 2020, when the volume of digital data is expected to reach 40 zettabytes, the number of network-connected devices -- sensors, actuators, instruments, computers and data stores -- is projected to reach 50 billion, roughly five times more than the expected population of the planet for that year. "Machine learning and Big Data, combined with edge computing, have been a disruptive force in HPC," said Pete Beckman, co-organizer of BDEC2 and director of the Northwestern-Argonne Institute for Science and Engineering at Argonne National Laboratory.
