The mission of the Center for Big Data (CBD) at NJIT is to synergize the strong expertise in various disciplines across the NJIT campus and build a unified platform that embodies a rich set of big data enabling technologies and services with optimized performance to facilitate research collaboration and scientific discovery. The CBD features focused research to investigate, develop, and apply cutting-edge technologies to address unprecedented challenges in big data with high Volume, high Velocity, high Variety, and high Veracity, in order to create high Value.

The big data-oriented systems and tools developed by the Center will act as discovery agents to investigate and explore previously intractable or inaccessible problems, and will also untangle researchers from constantly searching for complex computing and networking solutions for big data analytics so that they can concentrate on their original scientific goals.

Center for Big Data is part of the Institute for Data Science
