Big data innovation hubs: Opportunities for optical data storage partnerships (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Meredith M. Lee

Paper Abstract

Launched in November 2015 by the National Science Foundation, the four Regional Big Data Innovation Hubs (Northeast, Midwest, South, and West) build and strengthen public-private partnerships to address societal challenges. Focus areas include Smart Cities / Metro Data Science, Precision Medicine, Natural Resources and Hazards, and Education. By convening stakeholders from academia, industry, nonprofits, and government, the Big Data Innovation Hubs help the community to identify collaboration opportunities, share best practices, and advance the implementation of big data technologies. This talk will introduce the flagship initiatives of the West Big Data Innovation Hub, describing a series of projects and applications that could leverage next-generation optical data storage systems. Design issues including the integration of hardware, software, and human-computer interaction elements will be discussed, emphasizing practical testbeds and pilot projects that bridge sectors and spark community engagement.
