New initiative in data-intensive science and discovery
New York University has launched a new multi-million dollar collaboration, with Berkeley and U. Washington, to enable university researchers to harness the full potential of the data-rich world that characterizes all fields of science and discovery. At NYU, the initiative will be led by Yann LeCun. This partnership will spur collaborations within and across the three campuses and other partners pursuing similar data-intensive science goals.
The new five-year, $37.8 million initiative, with support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, was announced today November 12, at a meeting sponsored by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)
