FUNDING RESOURCES

 

The South Hub S.E.E.D Grant Program: Southern Engagement and Enrichment in Data Science

The South Big Data Innovation Hub S.E.E.D.S - Southern Engagement and Enrichment in Data Science program is designed to promote collaboration and support the cross-pollination of tools, data, and ideas across disciplines and sectors including academia, industry, government, and communities. Seed grant awards must support the southern region and the Major Goals and Priority Areas of the South Hub. See S.E.E.D grant program

 

The South Hub Spoke Grant Program 

The South Big Data Innovation Hub BDSPOKES program supports large and small scale projects, from $1,000 - $1 million, aimed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of knowledge and technology transfer between individuals, universities, public and private research centers and laboratories, large enterprises, and small and medium-sized businesses. Spokes Projects are funded through a set of connected solicitations at the National Science Foundation: BD SPOKES 17-546 & 16-510.  Spokes will work on specific goal-driven challenges that require data science ideas, approaches, and solutions. By taking on a convening and synergizing role, as opposed to directly conducting new research, the Spoke Projects will each gather important stakeholders, engage end-users and solution providers, and form multidisciplinary teams to tackle large questions no single field can solve alone. See Current Spoke Projects

 

SOFTWARE RESOURCES

 

VERA: The Virtual Ecological Research Assistant

Developed through the South Hub Spoke Project, the Virtual Ecological Research Assistant (VERA) uses Georgia Tech AI and the Smithsonian Institution’s Encyclopedia of Life (https//eol.org) to help construct models of ecological systems and answer questions about ecological phenomena. VERA is intended to support ecologists both student scientists from middle school to college and citizen scientists from nature observers to project managers.

MOYO: A HIPPA Compliant Mobile Health App for Large-Scale Medical Informatics

Developed through the South Hub Spoke Project, the purpose of the Moyo Health Network is to use the MOYO app to reduce the risk of medical events by empowering adults to embrace behaviors that can improve health through creative, digital health strategies (Mobile Health (mHealth)) technologies by allowing you to monitor heart health-related behaviors, including physical activity, sleep quality, food choices and mental/emotional health. The MOYO Health Network has targeted a range of projects including a young cohort between the ages of 18 and 29 in the Atlanta community to develop heart health as well as saving the lives of Maya women in rural Guatemala. Eventually, we plan on expanding to a cohort including all ages from all over the world.

EDUCATION RESOURCES

 

The Journal of Statistics and Data Science Education

The Journal of Statistics and Data Science Education (JSDSE) is an open-access peer-reviewed journal published by the American Statistical Association. It disseminates accessible knowledge for the improvement of statistics education at all levels, including: elementary, secondary, post-secondary, post-graduate, continuing, and workplace education. Although JSDSE is a journal of the American Statistical Association, submissions are welcome from educators, practitioners, and researchers around the world.
