9 Domain Specific Research & Infrastructure

10 Agency Program Highlights DARPA is continuing programs in Big Data and anomaly detection, machine learning, visualization, text extraction, and starting 3 new programs (Big Mechanism, Memex, and Big Data Capstone) with a focus on knowledge to discovery/action. NIST s Big Data Public Working Group is a community of interest for industry, academia, and government and will develop consensus definitions, taxonomies, secure reference architectures, and a technology roadmap DOE Science portfolio to support Extreme Scale Science focuses on multidisciplinary R&D for data reduction, scalability, data fusion for multi-experiments, simulations, and collaboration infrastructures. NSF cross directorate investment ($155M) and includes broad programs in core technologies, domain sciences areas, and infrastructure. NSF is also making specific investments in Big Data Centers at Berkley (AMPLab) and MIT (Brains, Minds, & Machines) and in earth Science (EarthCube) as well as in Big Data infrastrructure DIBBS program. NIH s 7 year, $100M/year BD2K initiative focuses on facilitating broad use of biomedical big data, developing and disseminating analysis methods and software, enhancing training, and establishing Centers of Excellence.

11 Agency Program Highlights USAID continues major programs like FEWS-Net, and focus techniques to integrate multi-resolution datasets and converting historical data to machine readable formats (i.e. from pdf). The US Group on Earth Observation (GEO) is continuing work on data integration and interoperability of earth science data across agencies and have compiled inventories and prioritized lists of earth datasets. NASA projects a dramatic increase in simulation data holdings, and new programs will focus on managing exascale science and improving modeling results with data scale up, as well as improving small scale data science and collaborative workbenches. NOAA s Big Data priorities focus on weather and climate (specifically hurricane) modeling and prediction, federal and public-private partnerships, and leveraging HPC. Specifically, NOAA is leveraging ARRA investments that dramatically increased data resolution/granularity to improve modelling. Data.gov is launching an update to streamline and automate agency submission of datasets onto the platform that should dramatically increase the number of datasets available on the site.

21 New Types of Collaborations

22 Data to Knowledge to Action: White House event encouraging publicprivate partnerships across the country November 12, 2013

23 Topical Domains Types of Competition Big Data Challenge Engage a broader audience and create a useful product Tool Design: Can we create a new tool that processes particular types of Big Data of interest? Information Extraction/Data Visualization: Can we design a system to help users make sense of data that is important to them? Data Collection: What interesting data are not being collected right now and how can we collect and use these data? System Design: How do we design a particular platform that addresses collection, processing, and/or collaboration of a particular type of Big Data? Improving Core Technology: How can we improve the performance of an existing Big Data tool or technique? Education: Can we create an app that teaches/improves student or public understanding of data analytics? Healthcare Energy Earth Science/ Climate Education (e.g. MOOC data, cyberlearning) Fraud, Waste, Abuse (Data Forensics) Government transparency Privacy Cybersecurity Human in the Loop/Human as Data Integrator/Crowdsourcing Scientific discovery Goals Engagement Increase general awareness of general public Improve federal agency buy-in on interagency collaborations Engages and improves public-private partnerships Usefulness Create a solution for a broader Big Data issue (e.g., platform for processing PDF data) Create an application that addresses a specific usage of interest Develop a new tool or technique of interest to the Big Data R&D community (i.e. algorithms) Novelty Solve a new, unique problem Address an issue that isn t or hasn t been a good fit for traditional mechanisms (e.g. grants, contracts)

24 Design choices for the challenge depend on the type and topic chosen Implementation Partner Phases and Outputs Participants Should we partner with a challenge platform, such as: TopCoder Innocentive Kaggle Mozilla How do we determine the implementation partner? Should it be through a competitive process? Ideation: Short white paper describing a concept and implementation System Design: Specification for a Big Data process/technique/platform implementation; can be Development: A built end product tool or platform, or a test prototype. Who is the target participant(s) in the challenge? General public Academic researchers Graduate and undergraduate students Corporate teams Can potentially have multiple tracks for different types of participants (e.g. student, corporate) each with a track winner along with an ultimate winner. Industry Partners Should we engage industry partners, and if so, what would they contribute? Prize money sponsorship Platform for data processing Marketing and outreach Proprietary datasets Partners benefit by getting Publicity for their company or their contributed technology Potentially access to the IP developed in the competition Interaction with agencies Timeline for Rollout What agencies are interested in participation? What is a reasonable timeline for rollout given budgets and agency clearance processes? Are there other major events planned where synchronization or avoiding of overlap would be useful? Funding Level What is the approximate funding level for a prize? Size of prizes for different topical domains can vary dramatically for the same type of work (i.e ideation, design, development)

25 Policy Issues

26 Public Access White House Memo on Feb. 22 directs United States federal agencies to develop a plan to support increased public access of results from federally funded research. Implementation plans for public access could vary by discipline, Peer-reviewed publications should be stored for long-term preservation and publicly accessible to search, retrieve, and analyze in ways that maximize the impact and accountability of the Federal research investment. and new business models for universities, libraries, publishers, and scholarly and professional societies could emerge. Digitally formatted scientific data resulting from unclassified research should be stored and publicly accessible to search, retrieve, and analyze.

27 Federal Investments past focus DATA KNOWLEDGE ACTION Data collection, fusion, integration Large scale/distributed analytics Data mining

28 Federal Investments new paradigms DATA KNOWLEDGE ACTION Discovery informatics Human in the loop Validation, statistics, and heuristics

29 Game Changing Themes Discovery informatics Accelerating the rate of discovery Human in the Loop Knowing what is in the black box Next gen bar charts Systems that reason A la the big mechanism Broadening participation Including women and underrepresented minorities Data Science for Public Good More partnerships

30 Big Opportunities for the Future Transformative implications for commerce and economy Critical to accelerating the pace of discovery and innovation Enhancing quality of life and societal wellbeing But the future won t happen the way we intend it if we don t work together!
