Northeast Big Data Hub Announces CRUX: The Collaborative Resource and Understanding Exchange Program
The Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub (NEBDIH) has recently announced the CRUX program: a Collaborative Resource and Understanding Exchange. Starting in spring of 2018, CRUX will launch the development of NEBDIH’s forthcoming Big Data Map and Assets Platform, with an ultimate aim of connecting the dots to create data-driven solutions to real-world problems.
CRUX represents a community-driven approach to accelerating data-driven innovation. In this first phase, NEBDIH will recruit a cohort of six doctoral candidates from across the Northeastern United States, who will serve as ambassadors engaging leaders in their fields of study, assessing their data science needs and collecting use cases and data sets for the platform. The goal is to provide real-world applications and data sets to data scientists, while providing subject matter experts from academia, corporate and government sectors access to Big Data expertise.
