The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Rutgers researcher Paul Kantor nearly $1.0 million as part of an initiative to extract useful information from so-called "big data" massive collections of data from sources such as scientific documents, orbiting instruments, digital images, social media streams, and business transactions.

Paul Kantor is a professor in the Department of Library and Information Sciences in the School of Communication and Information, where he heads the LAIR Laboratory. Read more here.
