$5.9 million will help grow big data businesses in Atlantic Canada


The Government of Canada is investing nearly $6 million in an $18-million project that brings together universities, industry and government in a research partnership to grow the regional ocean economy.

Led by Dalhousie University, the project will establish a shared computer analytics platform known as DeepSense that will help Atlantic Canadian companies to develop and commercialize big data analytics products and services.

Businesses will collaborate with scientists to develop their products and services using high performance computing infrastructure and personnel support provided by IBM Canada, an in-kind contribution valued at $9,838,000. Dalhousie University and the Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI) are also investing a total of $2,133,151 in the project.
