Traditionally, research was either done with pen and paper and/or by performing experiments and then analysing the results. Over the last three decades, computers' involvement in performing normal operations, experimentation and research has been ever-increasing. With so many CAD tools, almost everything can be simulated. Also, with help of advanced equipment, all experiment measurements can be brought onto a computer in some measure. With cheap storage options available, we do not hesitate in generating and collecting experimental data.
The present age can be described as an age of immense data. The amount of data being stored is rising exponentially. With rise of cloud computing, security measures by CCTV recordings, video streaming and uploading, etc., we can only expect the volume of data to rise.
We may have lot of data, but in most cases we are actually interested in the information contained. Sometimes it might be easy to interpret data manually and extract information, but most of the time it is not feasible for us, as data can be of the order of hundreds and thousands of dimensions.
This calls for various kinds of algorithms and techniques by which we can extract information or trends from data which are broadly categorised under the field of informatics. Informatics can be described as a discipline that intelligently combines sciences and the engineering of information.
