Episodic memory – the memory for our everyday life experiences – defines who we are. However, episodic memories are not literal reproductions of things past, but rather reassembled from constituent parts into a whole that is reminiscent of the original event.

Tibbetts, et.al., Streambase LiveView: Push-Based Real-TIme Analytics, here. This is TIBCO.
StreamBase LiveView is a new approach to real-time analytics and data warehousing in environments where large volumes of data require a management by exception approach to business operations. StreamBase LiveView combines techniques from complex event processing (CEP), active databases, online analytic processing (OLAP) and data warehousing to create a live data warehouse against which continuous queries are executed. The resulting system enables users to make ad hoc queries against tens of millions of live updating records, and receive push-based updates when the results of their queries change. This system is used for operational and risk monitoring in high frequency trading environments, where conditional alerting and automated remediation enable a handful of operators to manage millions of transactions per day, and make the results of trading visible to hundreds of customers in real-time.
