The Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) is an online collection of educational materials and tools for the use of advanced methods in probability and statistics. This faculty research team will develop an enhanced analysis and visualization toolbox for the SOCR with an emphasis on “Big Data”: very large datasets that are difficult to analyze and interpret in meaningful ways with basic probability/statistical methods. The toolbox will be designed to run in a web browser and provide an enhanced visual means to present, and interpret Big Data. The creation of the toolbox to enhance SOCR infrastructure will allow many more researchers (including students) to learn about, appreciate, and apply complex analytics to their work, making Big Data much easier to turn into “big results”.
