from the director

Data science holds the key to tackling many of society’s greatest challenges from COVID-19 to smart cities, social justice, and the global environment. Leading-edge computational approaches can extract hidden knowledge and generate fresh insights from large and complex datasets in many different sectors. That’s why the University of Miami Institute for Data Science and Computing (IDSC) is taking a collaborative approach that leverages our state-of-the-art technology, including an AI-ready supercomputer and 5G+ edge computing environment.

As a member of UM’s Frost Institutes of Science and Engineering, IDSC supports basic and applied research initiatives in schools and colleges across our University, sharing ideas, insights, and resources. IDSC is also launching new graduate and undergraduate student programs in data science, and building close ties with other U.S. and international academic institutions to develop educational, research, and community partnerships. IDSC’s focus on collaboration extends to industry, government, and nonprofit partners who recognize the U’s ability to provide valuable support. In that regard, I would like to thank our distinguished Industry Advisory Board members who are helping IDSC identify promising research directions.

IDSC welcomes the opportunity to explore how our powerful resources in data science and computing can help you achieve your research, training, and business goals.
