Data sciences enable transformative research in many disciplines. However, initiating and sustaining such work can be difficult and needs partners and expertise that may be difficult to find. The scope, challenges and outcomes requires active and engaged partnerships among disciplinary and data scientists that are often hard to form and sustain.
Data science related expertise is a core skill in most organizations and both Tufts’ current students and many in the communities Tufts serves need access to high quality education and training in these domains.
The Data Intensive Studies Center (DISC) will enable Tufts scholars and students to address these needs.
DISC will be sustaining institutionalizing TRIPODs initiatives. Learn more about TRIPODs activities at Tufts.
To enable excellence in data science scholarship and education at Tufts University.
Data science enables transformative research in many disciplines, but initiating and sustaining such efforts requires a focused entity to drive those goals forward. DISC is an evolving entity that fills the gap: we add value by creating long-lasting and engaged partnerships among disciplinary experts and data scientists, while exposing students and the Tufts community to high quality education and scholarship in data science topics.
