The South Big Data Hub organizes regular programming to support data science learning and to bring together people in business, academia, and government who apply data science and analytics to solve problems.

Three of our major initiatives are:

  • DataStart – The Southern Startup Internship Program in Data Science allows graduate students in good standing at accredited universities from the South region the opportunity to work with host data-related startup companies on data-intensive business challenges important to the company.
  • PEPI – The Program to Empower Partnerships with Industry  allows early career professionals to visit industries in order to kick-start new collaborations and research.
  • Virtual Roundtables – The South Big Data Hub Virtual Roundtable Series provides an open discussion forum  on the most pressing and interesting issues in data science.
