Welcome to the Analytics and Data Science Institute

There is an unquestioned recognition of a current and emerging talent shortage in the areas of Analytics and Data Science.  This is true in part because our definitions of “data” are continuing to grow and expand. These evolving definitions of data are creating both challenges and opportunities – across all sectors of the economy and all dimensions of society.

The Analytics and Data Science Institute brings together faculty and students from across the university, in collaboration with partners from both the private and public sectors, to engage in applied research to contribute to our understanding of our world through the translation of data into information. The Institute also offers a wide range of training and educational opportunities for individuals interested in learning more about data science – including both online and in-class training for students through working professionals.

Please join us for our 13th Annual Analytics Day on Friday, April 24. This event will feature poster presentations of students’ analytics research and guest speakers from Equifax, ATLytiCS, and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. Our Women in Data Science lunch takes place immediately after. Click here for more information and to register.
