© 2014 IEEE. Humans have always been interested in understanding themselves and their environment. Understanding their relationship with the environment is important to survival as well as thriving in the present situation and planning for the future. With advances in technology, the 21st century has witnessed significant advances in storage, processing, sensing, and communication technologies. All these have resulted in the popularization of strong data-dependent approaches, leading to the rise in the popularity of scientism in almost all disciplines where data can be collected. As the availability of data has become widespread, the desire to understand the physical reality at different levels in different applications has also become possible and desirable.
