National Science Foundation Opportunities to Shape How Science is Done Data plays a key role … The way computation, data, experiment & theory interact Enhanced Connectivity –Unprecedented Communication of Results –What didn’t work, not just what did The Data is getting bigger …. –Simulations –New instruments How do we handle BIG data? –Distributed, Inhomogeneous –Provenance? Access? “Presentation?” Will it be there tomorrow? –Discovery tool? –A gateway to new problems? –….
National Science Foundation OSTP: Big Data is a Big Deal President: … an “all hands on deck” effort. By improving our ability to extract knowledge and insights from large and complex collections of digital data, the initiative promises to help accelerate the pace of discovery in science and engineering, strengthen our national security, and transform teaching and learning.” more than $200 million from 6 Federal departments and agencies Big Data: data sets so large, complex, or rapidly-generated that they can’t be processed by traditional information and communication technologies Year 2: Obama Administration encourages federal agencies, industry, academia, state and local governments to develop and participate in Big Data initiatives. advance core Big Data technologies; use Big Data to advance national goals use competitions and challenges
National Science Foundation To help businesses discover, develop, and deploy new materials twice as fast, we ’ re launching what we call the Materials Genome Initiative. The invention of silicon circuits and lithium ion batteries made computers and iPods and iPads possible, but it took years to get those technologies from the drawing board to the market place. We can do it faster. -President Obama Carnegie Mellon University, June 2011

National Science Foundation The Science Drives The Cyberinfrastructure
National Science Foundation NSF Workshop The Materials Genome Initiative: The Interplay of Experiment, Theory and Computation J.J. de Pablo, B. Jones, C. Lind-Kovacs, V. Ozolins, A. P. Ramirez. Current Opinion in Solid State and Materials Science 18, 99–117 (April, 2014) “… a seamless interplay between experiment, computation and demonstration is essential.” A key role for data
National Science Foundation Consider a university researcher with an idea for a new battery material … She queries a large database of experimental and computational data accesses an online simulation service and suggests other promising compounds … … [Others] make some of the materials … and upload energy storage performance data to the database. … other computational researchers show why the new materials are effective. The new material is made in several labs and … stimulating industry. Commercial scale fabrication and scale-up are taken into consideration by industrial scientists and engineers as materials are being developed. All of this happens faster than the time it takes for a single research paper to be published today. (highly abridged) J.J. de Pablo, B. Jones, C. Lind-Kovacs, V. Ozolins, A. P. Ramirez.

National Science Foundation Designing Materials to Revolutionize and Engineer our Future NSF’s signature response to the MGI What: … activities that accelerate materials discovery and development by building the fundamental knowledge base needed to progress towards designing and making a material with a specific and desired function or property from first principles. DMREF goal: to control material properties through design: this is to be accomplished by understanding the interrelationships of composition, processing, structure, properties, performance, and process control. How: … the proposed research must be a collaborative and iterative process wherein theory guides computational simulation, computational simulation guides experiments, and experiments further guide theory. Benefits from existing software and data and will contribute new data, models, and software
