In the issue, guest editors Katina Michael of the University of Wollongong and Keith Miller of the University of Missouri-St. Louis describe several high-profile big data projects, such as the Human Brain Project and the US BRAIN Initiative to construct a supercomputer simulation of the brain to unlock the mysteries of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Those projects build on the success of the Human Genome Project, the 2003 effort that opened the door for extensive research into the genetic origins of disease and is a testament to the potential of big data. Michael and Miller note that big data can also be studied to help solve scientific problems in areas ranging from climatology to geophysics to nanotechnology.
