Data is a crucial raw material of the 21st century.

Surprisingly, extreme-scale aspects of Big-Data are very much under-explored in materials science and engineering, one reason being that ‘towards exascale’ computing initiatives typically focus on standard hardware and software challenges.

Clearly, much of the value of high-throughput calculations is wasted without deeper Big-Data driven analysis of the results.

This is the extreme-scale computing challenge addressed by the Novel Materials Discovery (NOMAD) Laboratory . ... more

 

NOMAD maintains the largest Repository for input and output files of all important computational materials science codes.

From its open-access data, it builds several Big-Data Services helping to advance materials science and engineering.
