When the compute requirements for a Big-Data problem are large enough, they will have to be provisioned from different sources, which makes the task of getting the data to the processing nodes challenging. We present a massively distributed evolutionary algorithm that runs on a compute grid of hundreds of thousands of CPUs, and is capable of utilizing sub-samples of the data in order to discover patterns and classifications in a variety of big-data problems. We demonstrate some of the powerful fault-tolerant, asynchronous features of the system's federated hub-and-spoke architecture and present a case-study on a biotech application in time-series prediction. We finish off with a discussion on how and where Deep Learning can augment this approach.
