The deluge of data brought by experiments, whether in physics, biology or astronomy is pushing us to think of innovative ways to transport, process, distribute and store information. ‘Big data’ and high-performance computing for big science is driving a revolution, fostering links with industry, creating jobs and generating growth globally. As such, it is helping society face some of its challenges, in particular in the fields of energy, creativity and innovation. So what direct benefits will big data bring to society? We can be certain that the development of new technologies, cloud processing, and data analysis and visualisation tools will have major applications in everyday life. We will debate where big data is going in the next decade and how this will benefit society as a whole.
