We are entering an era of real-time discovery and inference from instruments such as astronomical telescopes, light sources, high-energy physics particle trackers, brain-machine interfaces, earthquake detectors and environmental sensors. Increasingly, however, such inferences from large volumes of complex data must be acted on with very little or no human cognition in the loop due to the real-time requirements of the experiment or feedback from the observations. This workshop will explore the computational requirements of such applications, with particular emphasis on new techniques for handling these challenges including workflow design, machine learning and novel computational architectures.
