Simulation in the Era of Big Data: Trends and Challenges


Prof. Georgios K. Theodoropoulos


The emergence of extreme scale computing systems and the data explosion have presented an unprecedented opportunity for the analysis of systems at a rapidly increasing scale, complexity and granularity. This paradigm shift calls for an intermingling of “what-if” and data analytics approaches, however the worlds of Simulation and Big Data have so far been largely separate. The talk will focus on the interplay between simulation, data and emerging computational platforms, identifying gaps and opportunities and discussing some concrete examples of interacting scalable data infrastructures and agent-based simulations.
