In this video from the 2013 National HPCC Conference, Dr. Tsengdar Lee from NASA presents: Challenging Large-Data Problems at NASA.
NASA’s observations from Earth-orbiting satellites and outputs from computational climate models have contributed to one of the most data-intensive scientific disciplines today. The Earth system science tries to analyze the data, turns the data into information, makes sense of the information into knowledge and wisdom, utilize the knowledge and wisdom in decision making processes. In every step of the data life cycle workflow (i.e. curation, discovery, access, and analysis), NASA faces tremendous challenges.”
