What's Possible with Big Data?
Algorithms for Safer Streets
See how Dr. Greg Mori's algorithms translate massive amounts of video and image data into valuable information for decision making, like designing safer crosswalks.
We empower people to use big data to advance knowledge and solve real world problems.
“These skills and experiences will impact my future career because they are easily transferable across disciplines and subjects. This will be attractive to future employers, and also will make more useful in collaborations.”
Jayme Lewthwaite, PhD student, Biological Science
"Data-intensive research is very diverse, spanning many traditionally separate research communities. There is also an extensive (and growing!) set of technologies available to organize, move, store and analyze data. Having a single point of contact to provide assistance with a variety of tools to researchers at different experience levels is a real advantage."
