Use Cases

Patrick Reed Seven strategic science use cases from intentionally diverse disciplines–earth and atmospheric science, finance, chemistry, astronomy, civil engineering, genomics, and food science–were selected to demonstrate the potential of a federated cloud in broadening cyberinfrastructure impact.

These use cases will allow us to explore data analysis techniques such as MapReduce, data stream processing, and machine learning and their applicability to different disciplines. We will document the tools, workflows, challenges, and best practices for each science case. Requirements have been defined and the creation of VMs and proof of concepts are well underway. A Cornell University overview presented at SC18 in Dallas (SC18 pdf) includes Aristotle project goals and a summary of Aristotle science use cases onboarded to the cloud and their impact.
