This NSF-funded Data Infrastructure Building Blocks project is intended to address a large gap in the availability of open source research data for researchers in ISI. The University of Arizona Artificial Intelligence Lab and its partners, the University of Virginia, the University of Texas at Dallas, Drexel University, and the University of Utah, were awarded $1,499,531 for a three-year Pilot Demonstration Project to make available a significant archive of data and analysis tools to serve the ISI community.

The primary focus of the AZSecure-data project is on data collection and management, access, and data analysis. The goal is to identify and collect data that will be of the highest interest to the research community and providing the data to the community in the easiest, most useful, and most direct way possible.
