The Intel Science & Technology Center in Big Data has launched!
ISTC-Big Data is the sixth Intel Science & Technology Center. The concept was formulated by faculty from across the nation who are participating in the SciDB project focused on open source data management and analytics software for scientific research. It is led by MIT, and includes faculty from 5 other universities, including Magda Balazinska, Carlos Guestrin, and Jeff Heer from UW CSE.
In addition to our involvement in the new ISTC-Big Data, UW CSE leads the Intel Science & Technology Center for Pervasive Computing, and is a substantial participant in the Intel Science & Technology Center for Visual Computing.
