The Midwest Big Data Hub
“Big Data for Transportation and Mobility”
The NSF supported Midwest Big Data Hub has made data for transportation a priority. Its goal is to bring together experts in the increasingly powerful tools of Big Data (including visualization, machine learning, statistical models, integration of heterogeneous data, data scrubbing, privacy and security) with domain experts. The Midwest has been a center of innovation in transportation for generations and data-related research has become a major focus of interest for corporate, academic, and governmental organizations. This conference includes a series of presentations providing an overview of research underway in the Midwest hat will help us understand the scope of this work, encourage cross-fertilization, and possibly nucleate future collaborations.
One of the highlights of the meeting will be a series of talks by faculty from the schools that are the core of the Midwest Big Data Hub. Additional activities include tours of research sites on the Ann Arbor Campus, short tutorials and breakout sessions on pertinent topics.
Students are especially welcome and a poster session, part of the conference reception on June 22, will provide an opportunity for them to share their research. There is some limited travel and hosting funding available for students; restrictions apply and requests for travel/ hosting support should be submitted while registering.
The Midwest Big Data Hub is supported by the National Science Foundation through award #1550320.
