Big Data and HPC

We have been working in the area of so called big data many years. In Japan we call it 'Info-plosion' instead of big data. Eight years before Obama Big Data initiative, we launched Info-plosion project, which is one of the biggest IT project in our country. We would like to introduce some of the projects and show the potentials for the fusion of Big Data and HPC.
