The Digging into Data (DID) Challenge supports the research community to help create the new research infrastructure for 21st century scholarship.  The goal of the DID Challenge is to address how "big data" changes the research landscape for the humanities and social sciences.  For example, what new computationally-based research methods might be applied to study the massive databases of materials used by scholars in the humanities and social sciences -- ranging from digitized books, newspapers, and music to transactional data like web searches, sensor data or cell phone records.  As the world becomes increasingly digital, new techniques will be needed to search, analyze, and understand these everyday materials.  For details of the program and a link to the solicitation, see the DID Challenge Request for Proposals Addendum for Applicants to the NSF.
