PSC to Play role in Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub

Monday, Nov. 2, 2015

Today, the National Science Foundation announced the funding of four regional Big Data Innovation Hubs. Researchers from PSC and Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science and Mellon College of Science are part of the Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub, led by Columbia University.

Cheryl Begandy, director of Education, Outreach and Training at PSC will serve on the hub's Advisory Steering Committee. She will also serve with J. Ray Scott, director of Systems and Operations at PSC, on the hub's Data Sharing Connector Team, which will study platforms and formats for regional data sharing, including software to allow researchers to annotate and publish their own data. PSC intends to play a significant role in enabling efficient storage and analysis of the hub's large public data.
