PROJECTS OVERVIEW

The South Big Data Innovation Hub 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.

Each Data Innovation Project will work on a challenge that requires data science ideas, approaches, and solutions. By taking on a convening and synergizing role, as opposed to directly conducting new research, the six Data Innovation Projects, called “Spokes,” 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. However, unlike the Hubs, which aim to span the full range of data-driven challenges and solutions in a geographic region, each Spoke will have a specific, goal-driven mission.

Seed grant projects are designed to give money to PI’s to establish communities of practise, working groups, or provide a connection point between two or more communities, sectors, or solution providers to grow and scale opportunities for the Southern region. .

 

PROJECTS IMPACT

  • $6M+ in funding for large-scale Spoke Projects that impact the Southern region
  • $250k per year available for Seed Grant funding

 

The South Hub supported Data Innovation Projects - Spokes and Seed Grants - are listed below

This project was an awardee of the 2020 South Big Data Hub SEEDS Program - Southern Engagement and Enrichment in Data Science. It was the single large award funded at $100K. The PIs seek to build a consortium that provides an accessible and beneficial platform within the HBCU community.

OSN provides value to multiple disciplines, ranging from moving large astronomy datasets to compute resources to datasets geared towards strengthening machine learning research. Our users constitute a varied community of researchers and practitioners. The project is nationally coordinated effort led by the South Big Data Hub and supported by the Northeast, West, and Midwest Big Data Hubs

The long-term vision of the project is to help municipal leaders strengthen their ability to collect, use, and share data in a responsible manner. This will help grow privacy-preserving innovations across applications and geographic boundaries for the public good. In this way, the Smart Privacy for Smart Cities Spoke will serve to increase public knowledge, understanding, and engagement with privacy-related concerns, and ultimately, to promote the public’s trust in smart city technologies and in their local government.

The vision of this project is that communities occupying low-lying coastal areas of the southern US will be protected and develop in a sustainable manner through planning based on knowledge, conservation, and wise use of sensitive lands. Researchers from the University of South Florida’s College of Marine Science and the School of Geosciences at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi, along with Google Earth Engine are collaborating with the South Big Data Hub through this project to develop more accurate, ultra-high resolution topographic, land cover, and urban environment geospatial products. The project examines in detail areas that were directly impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in 2017, and identifies flood-prone areas across the region.

The project is a collaborative effort among the University of Tennessee Chattanooga, Tuskegee University, Spelman College, and West Virginia University to integrate and automate biological big data into student training and education. The project will offer training workshops, engage faculty and students in developing a protocol to automate field data collection, and will prototype automated methods to enhance plant digitization.
