Project Manager: Josh Baller
Approved: Summer 2022
Project Dates: 7/1/2023 – 6/30/2028
Funding Awarded: $10,000,000
The Data Analytics Center (DAC) will act as a central clearing house for researchers across the University grounds seeking assistance with the management or analysis of large-scale datasets. DAC will recruit experts with knowledge of in demand data analytics approaches such as Neural Network based Machine learning, as well as specific approaches for key domain areas. Additionally, DAC will recruit staff focused on negotiating access to external repositories of data and enabling integration with UVA data to form local repositories. To enable these goals DAC will build out a helpdesk to provide Tier 1 support (basic support and triage). To avoid duplicating efforts across grounds, DAC will leverage a mixture of in-house expertise from across Research Computing in key areas while connecting with existing areas of expertise in other units. An “Analytics Resource Awards” program will support Tier 3 collaborations with DAC staff and with experts in other units.
