Center for Massive Data Algorithmics is a response to the inadequacy of traditional algorithms theory when it comes to processing massive datasets on diverse computation platforms. The ambitious goal of the center is to be a world-leading center in algorithms for handling massive data, where massive is interpreted broadly to cover computations where the data is large compared to the resources of the computational device.
The high-level objectives of the center is to:
Train the next generation of researchers in a truly world-leading and international environment.
Be a catalyst for multidisciplinary collaborative research on massive dataset issues in commercial and scientific applications.
To meet these objectives the center builds on:
The three core research focus areas are all relatively young research areas within the broader algorithms research area, formed as a response to some of the inadequacies of traditional theory.
