Big data is pushing astronomy in a new direction. Massive amounts of astronomical big data produced by the new generations of powerful instruments and simulations are exponentially gathered every day. Big data like astronomical images, infrared, microwave, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma generated by stars, galaxies and black holes are observed by the new generations of space telescopes. It may take years to uncover the hidden signals in such data that may already hold answers to some of the
