The NSF Big Data Innovation Hubs Transportation Challenge is showcasing partner technology (from DataScience.com, Amazon, Microsoft, and others) and cloud-based data science resources to directly address big data challenges surfaced by recent natural disasters in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.
From the White House to the Cloud to You: National Collaborations for Big Data Disaster Response
Dr. Lee will be speaking at DataScience.com headquarters in LA, discussing how technology be used for the Challenge, including the DataScience.com Platform, can be used by government, industry, and academic groups to serve disaster response, relief, and prediction. Regional participants in the challenge will join as speakers and presenters.
BYOL!! Crowd-Sourced Mapping to Support Puerto Rico Relief Efforts
Dave Goodsmith, managing data scientist at DataScience.com, and other members of the digital mapping community will work with participants who have brought their own laptops to contribute to digital mapathon efforts through the Humanitarian Open Street Map Team and Open Street Maps. Goodsmith will provide an overview of the power of crowd-sourced mapping as well as the critical government trust earned by projects like OSM by governments and the Red Cross — a requirement for transforming remote digital expertise into direct aid.
Sign Up to Access Over $100,000 Worth of Big Data Resources and Credits
Participants will have the opportunity to use the DataScience.com Platform and donated cloud resources from Amazon.com, Microsoft, Google, and others to execute and develop data science demonstrations during and after the event. Collaborative teams will be formed to continue work following the event, on both mapping and more sophisticated machine learning efforts. Learn more about available resources at bigdatahubs.io
Note, this is a collaborative event that Our Lives, Our Data is co-hosting with PyData SoCal.
