CDI Workshop - From Big Data to Smart Data

At the March 13, 2019 monthly meeting, CDI’s executive sponsor Kevin Gallagher talked about the theme of this year’s CDI workshop: From Big Data to Smart Data - this concerns turning our huge volumes of diverse data into usable, actionable, integratable, or “smart” data. Registration for the workshop (June 4-7, 2019 in Boulder, CO) is open and can be found on the workshop wiki page.

We heard presentations from three FY18 CDI Funded Projects:
