PROGRAMS OVERVIEW

The South Big Data Innovation Hub supports the data science community through annual programs and regular series that bolster data science learning and bring together people in business, academia, and government who apply data science and analytics to solve problems. The South Hub’s major programs are the DataUp program, PEPI-G program, Seed Grant program, and Working Groups. These programs tap into the central goals of the South Hub around Education, Infrastructure, Partnership and Community by preparing institutions to teach data science, supporting faculty and student fellowships to connect with industry and government partners, as well as supporting the region in the convening of people and the cross-pollinating of ideas through seed grants.

 

PROGRAMS IMPACT

  • 3 Working Groups with 567 members representing 116 organizations
  • DataUp provided on-campus data science training workshops to 150+ undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff 
  • PEPI-G partnered with 8 industry and 1 government partner to provide early career faculty, researchers, and upperclass undergraduates career development fellowships

Description:
The series garnered community input into pathways for keeping data science as a discipline broadly inclusive. We gathered input from data science programs in any region across the nation, either traditional or alternative, and from a range of institution types including minority-serving institutions, community colleges, liberal arts colleges, tribal colleges, universities, and industry partners. The series consists of webinars, workshops, and programs exploring the future of data science education and workforce at institutions of higher learning that are primarily teaching-focused.
Event Location:
Description:
The DataUp Program allows academic institutions to apply to bring data science training capabilities to their campuses, thus expanding data science to more academic campuses across the South.

Description:
The Harnessing the Data Revolution Input Coordination Activity is an All Hubs/NSF activity geared to surface and gather insights, recommendations, and ideas from the community. The recommendations were used by the HDR Steering Committee in a face-to-face meeting to organize and discuss needs for a national HDR network. This initiative is a national effort led by the South Big Data Hub, but supported by the Northeast, West, and Midwest Big Data Hubs.
Event Location:
Description:
The Data Sharing and Cyberinfrastructure Working Group is actively working in close collaboration with the South, Midwest, West, and Northeast Big Data Hubs, including representatives from the NDS, XSEDE, DataNet Federation, and iRODS Consortium to map resources, identify new collaborations, and facilitate data sharing across partners.
Event Location:
Description:
An open monthly professional working group for data science educators and program leaders to discuss education and training in data science, curriculum development, training collaborations, and workforce development.
Event Location:
Description:
The Social Cybersecurity Working Group is a new working group that will create a collaborative and interdisciplinary platform bringing researchers and practitioners from various disciplines to share, exchange, learn, and develop new concepts, ideas, and principles, aiming to advance the understanding and the current state of research in the socio-cognitive security domain.
Event Location:
Description:
The COVID Information Commons serves as an open resource to explore NSF-funded research addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. This project is a nationally coordinated effort led by the Northwest Big Data Hub and supported by the South, West, and Midwest Big Data Hubs.
