Big Data of Engineering Physics/Science
As you know, the manufacturing systems generate huge amounts of sensor data from distributed manufacturing devices. It's a big data world. However, the problems are all engineering physics/science related, and slightly different from web text mining techniques. Their main concerns are storing huge data, extracting interaction effects of systems, and mining of emerging patterns from time series (the real-time monitoring and control systems are another issue). I believe that Hadoop HDFS and Apache Hama can cover this area in the future.
