Transdisciplinary Research in Principles of Data Science Phase I (TRIPODS)

By | | No Comments

Expect it to be in January 2018. Transdisciplinary Research In Principles Of Data Science_(TRIPODS) aims to bring together the statistics, mathematics, and theoretical computer science communities to develop the theoretical foundations of data science through integrated research and training activities. Phase I, described in this solicitation, will support the development of small collaborative Institutes.

Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure (CICI)

Expect the UM limited submission in Jan. 2018. Advancements in data-driven scientific research depend on trustworthy and reliable cyberinfrastructure. Researchers rely on a variety of networked technologies and software tools to achieve their scientific goals. These may include local or remote instruments, wireless sensors, software programs, operating systems, database servers, high-performance computing, large-scale storage, and other critical infrastructure connected by high-speed networking. This complex, distributed, interconnected global cyberinfrastructure ecosystem presents unique cybersecurity challenges. NSF-funded scientific instruments, sensors and equipment are specialized, highly-visible assets that present attractive targets for both unintentional errors and malicious activity; untrustworthy software or a loss of integrity of the data collected by a scientific instrument may mean corrupt, skewed or incomplete results._

Cyberlearning and Future Learning Technologies

Expect due date in mid Feb. 2018. The intention of this program is to advance technologies that specifically focus on the experiences of learners; innovations that simply focus on making teaching easier will not be funded. Proposals that focus on teachers or facilitators as learners are invited; the aim in these proposals should be to help teachers and facilitators capitalize on the affordances of technology and fundamental knowledge about how people learn to make the learning experiences of learners more effective.

Toyota Research Institute (TRI) invites proposals from the University of Michigan (ÒU-MÓ) in the areas of machine intelligence applied to robotics, self-driving cars, and automotive safety. As part of the $22M partnership with U-M announced in 2016, TRI plans to award up to $8 million for new research projects starting on January 1, 2018, in areas of interest to TRI. Newly funded projects will have durations ranging from one year to up to three years.
