Faster than life analytics is a way of looking at the leading edge of a smart data revolution, pushed by advances in Internet-based sensor hardware, diverse streams of continuous data, and new hardware platforms supporting accelerated Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Extracting value from massive and moving data hinges on balancing fundamental research, technological know-how, and commercial market intelligence.
In response to this need, The National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers (IUCRC) program recently selected the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) to lead the new Center for Accelerated Real-Time Analytics (CARTA). Partnering with Rutgers University Newark, North Carolina State University, and Rutgers University New Brunswick, with a diverse group of industry partners, CARTA will visualize and address the future advanced, real-time analytics needs of industry and society. Professor Vijay Atluri, Professor of MSIS at Rutgers Business School, will be the director of the Rutgers University Newark site (Newark Carta).
