Extreme Data Management Analysis and Visualization: Exploiting Large Data for Science Discovery

Effective use of data management techniques for massive scientific data is a crucial ingredient for the success of any supercomputing center and data intensive scientific investigation. Developing such techniques involves a number of major challenges such as the real-time management of massive data, or the quantitative analysis of scientific features of unprecedented complexity. The Center for Extreme Data Management Analysis and Visualization (CEDMAV) addresses these challenges with and interdisciplinary research in diverse topics including the mathematical foundations of data representations, the design of robust, efficient algorithms, and the integration with relevant applications in physics, biology, or medicine. This talk will discuss one approach developed for dealing with massive amount of information via a framework for processing large scale scientific data with high performance selective queries on multiple terabytes of raw data. The combination of this data model with progressive streaming techniques allows achieving interactive processing rates on a variety of computing devices ranging from handheld devices like an iPhone, to simple workstations, to the I/O of parallel supercomputers. This talk will provide a live demonstration of the effectiveness of some software tools developed in CEDMAV and discuss the deployment strategies in an increasing heterogeneous computing environment.
