The Challenge: Transform Data to Information

Responding to this observation, the SRI is initiating a large research project on Data-Driven Modeling and is organizing a consortium of companies to support an Industry-University collaborative effort to meet this challenge. Details on the consortium and how a company can participate and benefit are given here: DDM Consortium

The research aim is very simple: Transform data to information. Or, in more words, develop the most accurate and effective model (dynamic and/or nonlinear) for a variety of batch and continuous processes, with either complete or with partial knowledge of the inner working of the process.
