LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A Maine college will use the largest federal grant in its history to create a scientific video database.

Bates College is scheduled to receive nearly $4 million from the National Science Foundation. The Sun Journal reports the Lewiston college will launch a “Visual Experience Database” that supports research in fields that utilize images.

Bates says that could include neuroscience, artificial intelligence and other fields. The college says the grant is a multi-state collaboration that also includes researchers at North Dakota State University and the University of Nevada, Reno.
