Bold new partnership launches to harness potential of data scientists and big data
Date:11/12/2013

lti-disciplinary analysis of massive, noisy, and complex scientific data and the development of the tools and techniques that enable this analysis; and

  • Build on current academic and industrial efforts to work towards an ecosystem of analytical tools and research practices that is sustainable, reusable, extensible, learnable, easy to translate across research areas and enables researchers to spend more time focusing on their science.

    "Dramatic expansion in the scale of data collection, analysis and dissemination could revolutionize the speed and volume of discovery," said Chris Mentzel, Moore's Data-Driven Discovery program officer. "However, success ultimately depends on the individuals and teams that combine domain expertise with computational, statistical and mathematical skills what we are calling 'data science.'"

    "It's been hard to establish these essential roles as durable and attractive career paths in academic research," explained Josh Greenberg, who directs the Sloan Foundation's Digital Information Technology program. "This joint project will work to create examples at the three universities that demonstrate how an institution-wide commitment to data scientists can deliver dramatic gains in scientific productivity."

    The initiative will tap leading researchers at their respective institutions and some of the best minds in science and academia. Faculty leads include:

    • Yann LeCun, Silver Professor of Computer Science and Neural Science at New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and founding director of New York University's Center for Data Science;

    • Saul Perlmutter, professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, astrophysicist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Nobel laureate; and

    • Ed Lazowska, Bill & Melinda Gates Chair in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington and director of the University of Washington's eScience
