the MIT Big Data Project: A Living Lab

What is a "Living Lab"?  It is a open innovation ecosystem, operating in a specific context, integrating research and innovation processes within a public-private partnership.*  In short, a testbed for research and experimentation.
We propose creating a Living Lab at MIT to allow the community to access, share, and use data about life on campus.
Why? To explore issues around large-scale data integration, privacy, visualization, and performance, as well as social implications of big data.
