Karim Chine discusses the meaning of cloud computing to academic teachers and researchers in data sciences and how to take advantage of it. With public cloud computing a new era for research and higher education begins. Filmed at qconnewyork.com.

Karim Chine has been designing and building large scale distributed software for over a decade. Born in Tunisia, he moved to Paris in 1997, graduated from Ecole Polytechnique and Telecom ParisTech and worked several years at Schlumberger and IBM R&D departments. In 2006, Karim moved to Cambridge and worked at EBI and at Imperial College.

  • 6. 4 Introduction The Dancing Bear The townspeople gather to see the wondrous sight as the massive, lumbering beast shambles and shuffles from paw to paw. The bear is really a terrible dancer, and the wonder isn't that the bear dances well but that the bear dances at all The tragic failure of the Grid paradigm  No democratic access for all scientists, a tool for Particle Physicists and Geeky scientists  No sustainable infrastructures  No SLA, best effort support  No flexibility, no isolation, only admins can install software, X.509 certificates, restrictive policies  No interaction design, no user-centric approach
  • 7. 55 Introduction  The Data Deluge and the challenges of Big Data * http://www.slideshare.net/AmazonWebServices/20120620-aws-summitberlinbigdataanalyticsonaws
  • 8. 6 The Rise of Data Science * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_science Data Scientists Led by NASA Star Most Sought for Century: Jobs By Aki Ito - Jun 11, 2013 12:01 AM ET (Bloomberg.com) Harvard Business Review last year called this profession “the sexiest job of the 21st century” One measure of demand: Hours billed for work in statistical analysis grew by 522 percent in the first quarter compared with the same period in 2011
  • 9. 77 What is missing on the Cloud for Research and Education?  Science-as-a-Service: (SCEs) Scientific Computing Environments-as-a-service, Models-as-a-service…  Generalized Real-time Collaboration, including interaction with SCEs and with Data  One consistent platform for homogenous access to Science Clouds and new abstractions for stateful access to remote infrastructure/Data  Reproducibility and traceability of data analysis and computational research  Science Gateways building and publishing for everyone
  • 10. 8 Elastic-R: The Next Generation Data Science Platform Arduino / Raspberry pi Democratizing Electronics Elastic-R Democratizing Data Science
  • 11. 99 Elastic-R: The Next Generation Data Science Platform  Elastic-R is:  A link between the data scientist/the educator/the student and the Infrastructure-as-a-Service  A consistent set of concepts, architectures, frameworks and interaction design models to wrap and complete the existing public and private clouds with the missing capabilities to radically improve the data scientist productivity  « Super Glue » between the virtual IT capabilities, the software capabilities, the mathematical/statistical capabilities and the man- machine interaction components  A Data Operating System enabling infinite combinations for analysing data and building rapidly Data Science-centric applications and services
  • 12. 1010 Elastic-R: The Next Generation Data Science Platform  Elastic-R is:  A hyper-dropbox allowing to run a large spectrum of capabilities next to the centrally stored and ubiquitously accessible data.  A platform using the cloud to introduce traceability and reproducibility to the data science arena.  A federation paradigm for scientific clouds  A framework for building on-the-fly user-defined software-as-a-service
