Every day, some 2.5 trillion bytes of data are exchanged. This deluge is known as big data. How can we classify, store, and give meaning to this mass of digital information?

To make up for the short lifespan of current storage formats will researchers succeed in developing new platforms capable of ensuring the preservation of this data for future generations? Are our digital societies still capable of producing a lasting memory?

This film sets out to answer these questions through a rigorous, fascinating scientific investigation. Accompanied by very creative visuals, this investigation allows us to understand and anticipate the challenges of tomorrow's memory storage.
