Webinar: NSF Big Data Solicitation May 21

On May 21, The National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health will host a webinar on their joint Core Techniques and Technologies for Advancing Big Data Science & Engineering solicitation. This webinar is designed to describe the goals and focus of the BIGDATA solicitation, help investigators understand its scope, and answer any questions potential Principal Investigators may have.

The BIGDATA solicitation aims to advance the core scientific and technological means of managing, analyzing, visualizing, and extracting useful information from large, diverse, distributed and heterogeneous data sets so as to: accelerate the progress of scientific discovery and innovation; lead to new fields of inquiry that would not otherwise be possible; encourage the development of new data analytic tools and algorithms; facilitate scalable, accessible, and sustainable data infrastructure; increase understanding of human and social processes and interactions; and promote economic growth and improved health and quality of life.

Update: The webinar audio is now available for replay. Download the slides (PDF).
