DATA.BASE is a collaboration amongst government, academia and the private sector to assemble and build the world’s first structured, big data ecosystem. Formerly known as Intelligent Media Networks, the program is made possible through a $6.4-million contribution to Communitech from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario’s (FedDev Ontario) Technology Development Program.
“We are excited by the possibilities the DATA.BASE program represents for job creation in southern Ontario,” said the Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State for FedDev Ontario. “Harnessing the power of big data is a massive challenge, but one that has incredible potential to change the way business functions in every industry.”
