What Can Banks Learn from the U.S. Government’s Big Data Initiatives?
3. Department of Energy
The Department of Energy is providing $25 million in funding to establish the "Scalable Data Management, Analysis and Visualization (SDAV) Institute."
The SDAV Institute will bring together the expertise of six national laboratories and seven universities to develop new tools to help scientists manage and visualize data on the Department's supercomputers, which will further streamline the processes that lead to discoveries made by scientists using the Department's research facilities. The government says the need for these new tools has grown as the simulations running on the Department's supercomputers have increased in size and complexity.
