The Center of Data Science and Technology at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory coordinates the research, development and operations of data intensive and data-driven science systems, methodologies and technologies across JPL Engineering, Science and Programs establishing a virtual center. It comprises affiliated people, projects, technologies and research from NASA and non-NASA efforts in data intensive systems and data science.  This includes:

  • Scalable architectures (Data lifecycle)
  • Advanced data/cyberinfrastructure infrastructures
  • Information architectures (Information models, Ontology)
  • Data science methods (Machine learning algorithms, Statistical methodologies)
  • Visualization
  • Big data open source technologies/tools
  • Data preservation and management

The new Center for Data-Driven Discovery (CD3), led by Caltech professor of astronomy George Djorgovski, is closely partnered with the Center for Data Science and Technology.
