Welcome to the Data Science Institute

Two students working

This quotation from our president  attests to our university’s commitment to the challenge of big data. In our study of this challenge we have concluded that three major transformational events should inform our response: 1) The continued, unabated acquisition of unprecedented amounts and types of data; 2) The development and deployment of all the components of an integrated, scalable, and sustainable cyberinfrastructure (CI); and 3) The emergence of powerful mathematical and statistical modeling frameworks for the combination and integration of evidence from disparate sources and types. These transformational events form the basis for the Data Science lnstitute.
