From a computer science point of view, a 1.6 trillion item data set is ONLY a 2D-XY 1000 by 1000 item array with a time period of 1600.
or expressed as the following pseudocode:
// I.e. a 32-bit evaluation record containing any user-defined Boolean type
// Expert System or A.I.-centric data that is evaluated within a For-Next loop.
Evaluation_Record_Type = Record
Error_Code : Byte;
YES_NO_MAYBE_Evaluation : Byte;
Current_Evaluation_State : Byte;
// Define a 3D-XYZ array of ONE BILLION Boolean Evaluation records.
Array[ ZERO..999, ZERO..999, ZERO..999 ] of Evaluation_Record_Type;
// Define 1600 sets of a 3D-XYZ array of Evaluation Records
Time_Domain_Evaluation_Array = Array[ ZERO..1599 ] of Evaluation_Data_3D_Array_Type;
The above data set is now a 1.6 TRILLION item array of 32-bit long records!
We actually do this in our sleep all day every day!
I even do this on my personal el-cheapo workstation since I have 8 terabytes of RAM so I can hold that ENTIRE data set in system RAM alone! AND since I run SIMD and MIMD processing on that dataset i can number-crunch all that data in less than 10 seconds (32-bits wide at 50 TeraFLOPS on our cheapo AMD GPUs) -- We can do that processing in mere nanoseconds if we use the our 60 GHz GaAs multi-cpu monster-machines!
A 1.6 Trillion item data set is SMALL POTATOES these days!
Call me when you get to Multi-ExaByte-sized and Zetta-Byte sized data sets!!!
