The NSF Center for Big Learning (CBL) is under the auspices of the Industry & University Cooperative Research Center (IUCRC) Program of National Science Foundation. With the vision of creating intelligence and leveraging collective wisdom from academia, industry, and governments, the CBL consortium focuses on large-scale deep learning (DL), intelligent platforms, and DL-enabled big data applications in a broad spectrum of disciplines. CBL is composed  of three academic sites across the country and industry partners: University of Florida (UF, East), University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC, Central), and University of Oregon (UO, West). Faculty members (60+) at these three sites have the comprehensive expertise, covering key research themes and application disciplines. The consortium is sponsored by NSF and industry members over the world.

The Vision

Creating intelligence towards intelligence-powered society.

The Mission

The mission of the NSF CBL is to explore and pioneer research frontiers in emerging large-scale deep learning for a broad spectrum of big data applications, design novel intelligent platforms to enable big learning research and applications, transfer research discoveries to meet urgent needs in industry with our diverse center members, and nurture our next generation talents in a mixed academic and industry setting with real-world relevance and significance via the industry-university consortium.
