Smart Data Zone
We live in the era of data and computers, with scientists collecting massive amounts of information to analyse and use in a multitude of ways. Data can be gathered from all sorts of place, for example social media, or information from satellites in space. But what do they do with it all?
Scientists in this zone might be using data to develop more efficient weather forecasting systems, working out how to better run public services in busy cities or looking at millions of models of people to study how a certain disease spreads. They could even be using data from huge computers to work out how the universe is constructed.
