Scope and Objective

Grid computing allows the processing and distribution of large volumes of data. In many cases, these large datasets will be generated by humans, and will need to be human-readable as well. Over the next years, the increasingly large volumes of data generated by users (through e.g. social computing and sensor networks) will not only require the technology and network infrastructure to process the data, but also to allow humans to understand and use it.

These users are not only experts and experienced grid scientists, so it is up to computer science to improve the interaction mechanisms between humans and computers. Therefore, we aim to study how to improve the interaction of humans with all these Big Data produced by Smart Cities, that is, Smart Data.
