Large scale data management and analysis (aka Big Data) R&D advances extraction of knowledge and insight from data; this includes R&D in the capture, curation, management, access, analysis, and presentation of large, diverse, often multisource, data.




Overview

The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) was formed in 2011 to coordinate Federal BD R&D across 17 participating agencies to enable extraction of knowledge and insights of large, diverse, real-time data for an effective analysis, decision making, and discovery. Guided by the Federal Big Data Research and Development Strategic Plan, the IWG focuses on the capabilities to collect, store, access, analyze, reuse, and provide governance for big data that will accelerate scientific discovery and innovation, lead to new areas of research and inquiry, provide vast resources to enhance national security, and create new capabilities that support economic growth and novel solutions to pressing national issues.
