Intel has moved to a collaboration model with universities consisting of \"Science and Technology Centers\" (ISTCs). These are located at a \"Hub\" university with participation from other universities, contain embedded Intel personnel, and are focused on some research theme. Intel held a national competition for a 5th science and technology center in 2012 and selected a proposal from M.I.T. with a theme of \"Big Data\". This paper presents the big data vision of this technology center and the execution plan for the first few years.
