December 11, 2015 Blog big data data science

The Georgia Institute of Technology and University of North Carolina’s Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) will co-direct a new Big Data Regional Innovation Hub serving 16 southern states and the District of Columbia.

The South Big Data Regional Innovation Hub (South BD Hub) — jointly housed at Georgia Tech and UNC-Chapel Hill — was announced as part of the National Science Foundation’s Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs. The initiative will address regional challenges through data analysis.

Projects will include:Health Care, Coastal Hazards, Industrial Big Data, Materials and Manufacturing, Habitat Planning

Data science touches all aspects of the human experience, and the Hub will enable us to bring data together in a complementary way for better problem solving in our communities. It already is initiating new collaboration and dialogue among many large stakeholders in a way that would not have happened otherwise.

The South BD Hub will serve Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
