What is The BiGmax Network?
In BiGmax, Max Planck researchers from 10 Max Planck Institutions and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin address the big-data challenges of modern materials science. This concerns the 4V issues (Volume, Variety, Velocity, and Veracity) and, in particular, the development of artificial-intelligence tools to analyze the data. This new research direction aims to identify better or even novel materials for specific purposes for basic sciences and applications. The first period of the network is five years. It started in April 2017.
