A new £30m centre to unleash the potential offered by big data will be launched at Science Central in Newcastle by Newcastle University. The National Institute for Smart Data Innovation (NISDI) will bring together industry, the public sector and world-leading academics to develop the skills, ideas and resources needed to exploit opportunities offered by the explosion in digital data. NISDI will reportedly enable businesses to extract value from smart data which will help address specific challenges in areas including health, automotive and manufacturing. Professor Paul Watson, Director of Newcastle University's Digital Institute, explained: 'As the volume of big data increases, organisations face real challenges in unlocking its value: the new Institute will help them to achieve this.'
