NSF Establishing Big Data Hubs

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is awarding funds to establish Big Data Hubs. “As a part of the Administration’s Big Data Research and Development Initiative and to accelerate the emerging field of data science, NSF announced four awards this week, totaling more than $5 million, to establish four Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs (BD Hubs) across the nation. Covering all 50 states and including commitments from more than 250 organizations—from universities and cities to foundations and Fortune 500 corporations—the BD Hubs constitute a ‘big data brain trust’ that will conceive, plan, and support big data partnerships and activities to address regional and national challenges.”
