UVa Launches Big Data Institute

August 25, 2013

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - An initiative at the University of Virginia will examine ways to use massive amounts of data collected by government, companies and academic researchers.

The Big Data Institute is a collaboration between university departments. U.Va. vice president for research Tom Skalak tells The Daily Progress that it's something larger universities wouldn't be able to undertake because their units are more separate.

Skalak says the initiative will look at ways to organize and streamline massive amounts of data.

He says university departments have been discussing the need for more data analysis for the past few years.
