To improve the tools and techniques needed to access, organize and glean discoveries from huge volumes of digital data.
The Obama Administration Thursday unveiled a Big Data Research and Development Initiative that will see the six federal agencies and departments put $200 million or more into Big Data R&D.
These new commitments are supposed to improve the tools and techniques needed to access, organize and glean discoveries from huge volumes of digital data.
Dr. John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, said, “In the same way that past federal investments in information technology R&D led to dramatic advances in supercomputing and the creation of the Internet, the initiative we are launching today promises to transform our ability to use Big Data for scientific discovery, environmental and biomedical research, education and national security.”CLOUD COMPUTING, DATA and ANALYTICS , News
