iSGTW speaks to CERN openlab’s Sverre Jarp, ahead of this month’s inaugural ISC Big Data conference in Heidelberg, Germany. Jarp, who is the general chair of the event, picks his highlights from the conference program and tells us why big data presents exciting opportunities, but also poses challenges, for enterprise and HPC alike. 


Virginia Kuhn is an associate professor in the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, US. She joined USC in 2005 after successfully defending one of the first born-digital dissertations in the country. Kuhn challenges academic conventions borne of print literacy, integrating multimedia literacy into courses across the academic spectrum and inspiring new research and teaching practices.

Kuhn is the principal investigator on the Large Scale Video Analytics Project.  Read about her research and use of novel visualization tools, like Movie-cube, developed by Dave Bock at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, in Urbana, Illinois, US.
