"The National Institutes of Health announced a $6,341,419 grant to support the Play and Learning Across a Year (PLAY) project—a collaborative research initiative by 65 researchers from 45 universities across the United States and Canada. PLAY will focus on the behaviors of infants and mothers during natural activity in their homes, providing an unprecedented corpus of data, and using an innovative, transparent approach to science. The data set will consist of fully transcribed and annotated videos, parent report questionnaires, video tours of the home, digital recordings of ambient noise, and detailed demographic information on 900+ infants and mothers from across the United States. This first-of-its-kind corpus will be shareable and searchable with data spanning domains from language to locomotion, gender to gesture, and object play to emotion."
