MIDAS awards first round of challenge funding in transportation and learning analytics

By | General Interest, Happenings, News

Four research projects — two each in transportation and learning analytics — have been awarded funding in the first round of the Michigan Institute for Data Science Challenge Initiatives program.

The projects will each receive $1.25 million dollars from MIDAS as part of the Data Science Initiative announced in fall 2015.

U-M Dearborn also will contribute $120,000 to each of the two transportation-related projects.

The goal of the multiyear MIDAS Challenge Initiatives program is to foster data science projects that have the potential to prompt new partnerships between U-M, federal research agencies and industry. The challenges are focused on four areas: transportation, learning analytics, social science and health science.
