Fighting in Maya ruins: Data Engineering, Data Science, computation clusters and the trans-neptunian search tool

IAA is sitting under a gold mine of data, achieved in past observing campaigns, that will be increased with the data coming from next instrumentation. A tool that can exploit the wealth beneath our feet is the Engineering and Data Science (EDS).
This lecture will introduces the EDS and its application on preliminary analysis on a concrete astronomical problem: the search of trans-neptunian objects. Two of the tools used in this analysis will also be presented, the Maya computing cluster and the GAIA database.
Finally, two proposals will be announced to promote the use of EDS in the IAA.
