Congratulations to Edward Fox, professor of computer science and DAC faculty member, who is among a group of Virginia Tech researchers collaborating with Virginia Tech Libraries that has recently been awarded a $308, 175 National Leadership Grant for Libraries from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  The team will be exploring effective ways of storing and reusing bid data.


“The IMLS grant will allow contrasting use of the cloud with local infrastructures, like ours that is tailored for integrating focused crawling from the web, tweet collection, collaboration with the Internet Archive, and advanced methods of machine learning, natural language processing, information retrieval, digital libraries, archiving, visualization, and human-computer interaction,” said Fox.
