Big data have attracted great attention in science, technology, industry and society.  However, its nature and the fundamental challenge have not been recognised. Big data research is developing with the evolving scientific paradigm, the fourth industrial revolution, and transformational innovation of technologies.

This lecture tries to answer the following questions: What is the nature of big data? What is the relation between big data and knowledge? What kind of infrastructure is requested to support not only big data management and analysis but also knowledge discovery and management? What is the relation between big data and science paradigm? What is the fundamental challenge of big data computing? Can we find an approach to mapping big data into knowledge space?
