The core work of the Hariri Institute for Computing focuses on people: empowering a community of scholars who can dramatically advance the state of our collective knowledge, enabled by rapid advances in computational techniques and the growing availability of digital data.

To that end, the institute has put in place an organization—and programs—devoted to developing this community that includes a leadership team, faculty, students, postdocs, and staff at BU as well as visiting researchers and visionaries from other universities, companies, and nonprofit organizations.
