Lead Professor: Peter Fox

Description:

In the last 2-3 years, Informatics has attained greater visibility across a broad range of disciplines, especially in light of great successes in bio- and biomedical-informatics and significant challenges in the explosion of data and information resources. Xinformatics is intended to provide both the common informatics knowledge as well as how it is implemented in specific disciplines, e.g. X=astro, geo, chem, etc. Informatics' theoretical basis arises from information science, cognitive science, social science, library science as well as computer science. As such, it aggregates these studies and adds both the practice of information processing, and the engineering of information systems.

Description: Given this increasing data deluge, it is clear that each of the Directorates in the Deep Carbon Observatory face diverse data science and data management needs to fulfill both their decadal strategic objectives and their day-to-day tasks. This project will assess in detail the data science and data management needs for each DCO directorate and for the DCO as a whole, using a combination of informatics methods; use case development, requirements analysis, inventories and interviews.
Jefferson Project at Lake George Project LogoE-Science Jefferson Project on Lake George (Jefferson Project)
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Co Investigator: Paulo Pinheiro
Description: The Jefferson Project at Lake George is building one of the world’s most sophisticated environmental monitoring and prediction systems, which will provide scientists and the community with a real-time picture of the health of the lake. Launched in June 2013, the project aims to understand and manage multiple complex factors—including road salt incursion, storm water runoff, and invasive species—all threatening one of the world’s most pristine natural ecosystems and an economic cornerstone of the New York tourism industry. The project is a three-year, multimillion-dollar collaboration between Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, IBM, and The FUND for Lake George. The collaboration partners expect that the world-class scientific and technology facility at the Rensselaer Darrin Fresh Water Institute at Lake George will create a new model for predictive preservation and remediation of critical natural systems in Lake George, in New York, and ultimately around the world.
Earth System Grid - Center for Enabling Technologies (ESG-CET)
Principal Investigator: Peter Fox and Dean Williams
Description: The Earth System Grid (ESG) integrates supercomputers with large-scale data and analysis servers located at numerous national labs and research centers to create a powerful environment for next generation climate research. Access to ESG is provided through a system of federated Data Gateways, that collectively allow access to massive data and services for Climate Global and Regional Models, IPCC research, and analysis and visualization software. The Earth System Grid - Center for Enabling Technologies (ESG-CET) is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy as part of the SciDAC (Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing) program. At the heart of the Earth System Grid is the need for access and transport of various data products. These products are produced and consumed in many and varied parts of the ESG architecture, including on data nodes, gateway nodes, clients and federated sites. The RPI effort involves secure, high-performance access and transport of data within the ESG-CET framework.
ECOOP LogoEmploying Cyber Infrastructure Data Technologies to Facilitate IEA for Climate Impacts in NE & CA LME's (ECO-OP)
Principal Investigator: Peter Fox
Co Investigator: Andrew Maffei
Description: The purpose of this INTEROP proposal is to facilitate the deployment of an Integrated Ecosystem Approach (IEA) to management in the Northeast and California Current Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs). The direct result of the proposed activity will be application-level data and information enhanced communication for developing the consensus networks to define the specific components of interest to support the implementation of NOAA’s Driver-Pressure-State-Impact Response framework (DPSIR) decision framework and the cyberinfrastructure technologies to ensure data interoperability and reuse.
HAO-CI LogoHigh Altitude Observatory - CyberInferstructure (HAO-CI)
Description: Working to develop a semantically enabled cyber infrastructure for the varying science projects within the High Altitude Observatory of the University Corporation of Atmospheric Research.
Mobile Health Project LogoMobile Health
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Description: The Mobile Health project aims to bring semantic representations of medical data collected from a variety of consumer and medical grade devices and integrate those data on an individual's mobile smartphone. Combined with the reasoning capabilities of semantic web and technologies such as IBM Watson, this project plans to enable personalized health care through the instrumented self.
MDSA LogoMulti-Sensor Data Synergy Advisor (MDSA)
Principal Investigator: Peter Fox
Description: Augment Giovanni, the Goddard online tool for data access, visualization and analysis, with semantic web technologies and ontologies to support data inter-comparisons from different sensors or models. Data provenance (i.e. the essential data parameter details, quality and production caveats) will be added to enable researchers to make valid data comparisons and draw quantitative conclusions on specific analysis (e.g. ocean fertilization due to acid rain). In the resulting Giovanni framework, the dataset variable characteristics and related quality can be encoded so that inter-comparison rules can be derived.
Nanomine LogoOntology-Enabled Polymer Nanocomposite Open Community Data Resource (Nanomine)
Principal Investigator: Wei Chen, Deborah L. McGuinness, Linda Schadler, and Cate Brinson
Description: Our evolving semantics=driven data resource, named NanoMine, is an open access, user friendly, living, growing, data resource for the polymer nanocomposites community that is scalable and enables improved understanding of processing – structure - property relationships and thus facilitates faster nanocomposite design and insertion into advanced applications. By bringing together the data that is scattered throughout the public literature and private files and creating a protocol for recording and tagging data, this resource is an unprecedented compilation of information that is accessible. Tools within the resource allow users to visualize complex data, analyze images from their work, and design new polymer nanocomposites materials. For NanoMine to realize broad community acceptance and address scientific questions at the forefront of technology, it marries cutting edge cyber infrastructure with a robust set of data and tools.
