Alok Choudhary, John G. Searle Professor has been quoted in a recent HPCWire article, titled, "DOE Exascale Roadmap Highlights Big Data."

The article follows the work of William (“Bill”) J. Harrod, Division Director for the Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR), Office of Science with the US Department of Energy (DOE), who asserted in January through a report, that the DOE’s mission to push the frontiers of science and technology would require extreme-scale computing with machines that are 500 to 1,000 times more capable than today’s computers.

As Choudhary has observed of this report, titled, Big Data and Scientific Discovery, “Very few large scale applications of practical importance are NOT data intensive.”
