The contest is part of the administration’s national big data development effort.

October 20th, 2010 at 11 AM The application of knowledge discovery within the cloud is immensely powerful, but not inbuilt. We are collectively moving past the question of ”what is cloud computing”, and swiftly moving towards ”how does the cloud enable advanced analysis against massive volumes of data?” With industry and government leveraging multiple clouds, how do we successfully share and search large collections of data across systems, departments, and geographies? Organizations will continue to discuss and better understand the analytic power and economies of cloud computing, in the sense of data storage, sharing, and management; but we are quickly discovering that creating knowledge from data is more than just a discussion of technology. It’s a discussion of what can be accomplished when massive data and cloud computing efficiencies combine to make advanced analysis and innovation possible.
