Description

The Target Field Lab *Mining Big Data* facilitates both entrepreneurs and science projects with the development, testing and implementation of innovative services that utilize Big Data and e-Science. Entrepreneurs can make use of flexible hardware and software facilities, which might otherwise be inaccessible to them. During the initial phase the facility is being developed jointly by three public institutes and three private companies, whom each make complementary contributions from their own domain. The fields being addressed are varied and include data visualization (360° and 3D), time series analysis and data lineage in social media (*Facts or Fakes*). Other facility users from both the public and private sector are encouraged, with the aim being to establish a permanent facility in the North Netherlands. The full power of the facility lies in the recognition of domain specific and generic layers enabling both "smart data modeling" and "machine learning“. The domain specific layer contains the data model, visualization tools, processing algorithms and collaborative tools. Meanwhile, full data lineage, reproducibility, traceability, processing on demand and integrated storage are all key features of the generic layer. The generic and domain specific layers are realized together in an intelligent software layer, known as the Target Big Data Access Layer. This layer is an element in the concept of domain specific Data Federations using WISE Technology developed in the earlier Target project, which ran from 2009 to 2015. WISE technology has already been used to publish results from Open Science projects, such as the KiDS astronomical survey on the VLT Survey Telescope. It has also been used previously in information system to support such diverse projects as the MUSE spectrometer (on the Very Large Telescope) and GLIMPS (which classifies PET scans to distinguish between types of Parkinson’s disease). WISE technology also underlies the information system which will be used by Euclid (ESA’s dark matter and dark energy mission). The use of the Target Big Data Access Layer clearly distinguishes the Target Field Lab from the services offered by commercial cloud providers.

Summary

The Target Field Lab Mining Big Data facilitates both entrepreneurs and science projects with the development, testing and implementation of innovative services that utilize Big Data and e-Science. Entrepreneurs in the North Nederlands can make use of flexible hardware and software facilities, which might otherwise be inaccessible to them.

The full power of the facility lies in the recognition of domain specific and generic layers enabling "smart data modeling" and "machine learning“.This layer is an element in the concept of domain specific Data Federations using WISE Technology developed in the earlier Target project.
