Later today (2-3:45 pm ET), the White House will announce a $200M BigData research Initiative. Appropriately, it is being named the “Big Data Research and Development Initiative.”
The announcement will be broadcast live on Science360.
See this PDF for a listing of bigdata projects within the US Government.
I am excited to see how this will affect the education and training of data scientists.
What are your thoughts? Is this a good idea?
