NSF Funds Big Data Brain Trust - Dian Schaffhauser, Campus Technology

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is making sure that big data gets attention in every pocket of the country. This week the NSF unveiled the establishment of four regional hubs for data science innovation, each led by a team of university experts and extending out to almost 300 other organizations, including non-profits, cities and businesses. Each big data or BD hub will specialize in particular areas of study and will provide guidance for building out "spokes" to undertake specific projects. The "big data brain trust" assembled within each hub is expected to develop and support regional partnerships and activities to address regional challenges.
