Data Science Expert David Bader Looks to Fed Funding for Info AnalysisNovember 14, 20192 min read
David Bader leads the New Jersey Institute of Technology's Institute for Data Science. He also advises the National Strategic Computing Initiative, founded in 2015 under President Obama through the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy, which released a report today reaffirming past goals and emphasizing the needs for federal funding of new hardware types; partnerships between academia, government, and industry; and creative approaches to data science and cybersecurity.
"In 2021 the U.S. plans to achieve exascale and we have to start planning now as to how we're going to address global grand challenges post-exascale," Bader noted.
"What's next is to understand the new opportunities that come through support from the federal agencies, for instance National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Energy, among others, where we collaborate in partnership with industry and government within strategic priorities," he continued.
Top computing experts and systems will soon need to answer:
- How do we let data speak to us and be able to help us inform how to ask the right questions, and what is the power that we get out of that?
- What is the power of putting data sets together with each other and what is the possibility of innovation we can have across many sectors?
- How do we put data together to make our lives better, safer, and more interesting?
