WG2: Data mining and machine learning in the petabyte era as frontiers in astronomy and Earth observation

Short description: this group is inclined more toward front-end solutions visible to the users, where often tools used to date fail or are too slow on petabyte datasets.

WG2 Leader: dr. Gottfried Schwarz (Germany)
WG2 Vice-Leader: dr. Darko Jevremovic (Serbia)

Call for Short Term Scientific Missions

This is a call for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) within BigSkyEarth COST Action. Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening existing networks and fostering collaboration between researchers. A STSM should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action, whilst at the same time allowing those partaking in the missions to learn new techniques, gain access to specific data, instruments and/or methods not available in their own...

Presentations from the BigSkyEarth conference

The BigSkyEarth conference in Sorrento, Italy, addressed the question of how to train a new generation of astronomy and Earth observation scientists in the age of interdisciplinarity driven by big data. Modern data-intensive research requires natural science students trained in software engineering, algorithms, and data mining, data management and visualization. These trends challenge the current paradigm of what constitutes education in astronomy or Earth observation. Big data trends in modern astronomy and Earth observation make those...
