Big Data at UCLA
Big Data is an emerging pillar of modern scientific discovery, involving the use of extremely large and complex datasets, requiring new and/or non-traditional methods for data collection, storage, analysis, curation, transfer, visualization, querying, and protection. The Big Data arena is having an extraordinary impact on research activities worldwide, in fields as diverse as social sciences, arts and architecture, physical sciences, health sciences, and engineering. Many of these research activities have the potential for solving important and challenging problems that can have profound benefits for society.
UCLA researchers are engaged in a range of activities that involve and contribute to the Big Data arena, with myriad applications in arts, architecture, humanities, social sciences, engineering, physical and life sciences, information sciences, and health sciences. This portal provides an overview of these activities, indicated in the links below.
As a means of fostering the development of this important research area at UCLA, during 2016-17 the OVCR has initiated a Transdisciplinary Seed Grant (TSG) program with an emphasis on collaborative research relevant to Big Data. The initiative is designed to “seed” and support new lines of research and new interdisciplinary collaborations at UCLA that involve the use of extremely large and complex datasets.
