The discovery machines – how supercomputers will shape the future of data-driven science

Research infrastructures play a key role in delivering high quality scientific data to many scientific communities. In the future, we will face a tremendous increase in data volume and rate at these facilities. This will fundamentally change the role of computing at these facilities. With this change new possibilities of using supercomputers for science arise. We will discuss how that future might look like, what is necessary to bring it to reality and – most importantly – how this will allow to foster interdisciplinary science in a complex world.
