Faculty Recognition: Nancy Ide

Nancy Ide, Professor of Computer Science, was awarded a supplemental grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the ongoing research of "SI2:SSI: The Language Application Grid: A Framework for Rapid Adaptation and Reuse".  Launched in 2012 with NSF support, the project is a collaborative effort involving Brandeis University, Carnegie Mellon University and the Linguistic Data Consortium of the University of Pennsylvania that aims to develop an open, web-based infrastructure through which massive and distributed language resources can be easily accessed and within which tailored language services can be efficiently composed, evaluated, disseminated and consumed by researchers, developers and students alike.  This latest award builds on Nancy's remarkable record: Since 1991, her work has brought more than $4,000,000 in NSF support to Vassar for computer science research, providing abundant opportunities for student participation throughout.
