Use case class 5: real-time challenges, data irreversibility

In experiments of high-energy physics and upcoming astronomical observatories, data are
taken at rates much too high to be storable in long-term archives. This use case class
addresses the challenge of extracting in real-time the tiny subset of ”interesting data” out of huge
data streams in an automated way. The tools and methods currently used are not sufficient to
cope with future demands. PUNCH4NFDI will develop methods for coping with the challenges
due to ”data irreversibility”, as decisions on what part of the incoming data streams need
to be rejected have to be taken in real-time and the unavoidable resulting loss of information
is mostly not reversible.
