Data to Knowledge to Action: Building New Partnerships

The Obama Administration on Big Data and NSF on national efforts enabling data-driven discovery

On Tuesday, November 12, the Obama Administration hosted an event under the auspices of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the Networking and Information Technology R&D program coordinating office titled “Data to Knowledge to Action: Building New Partnerships” which provides a progress report on the big data initiative first announced in March 2012.

The agenda, and more importantly several very useful background documents, can be found here: http://www.nitrd.gov/nitrdgroups/index.php?title=Data_to_Knowledge_to_Action

In conjunction with this event, NSF also issued a press release that summarized their progress in supporting the initiative, with many links to descriptions of specific projects and programs.
