So where are we going next? Well, let’s look at the data. Literally.
Because of the research potential resulting from the rapidly growing supply of raw data, machine learning, and the expansion of computational capacity, Boston University is organizing to lead in the emerging field of data sciences.
To that end, last fall we began site work for a 19-story tower in the heart of campus to house the Center for Computing & Data Sciences. The building, to be the tallest on campus, will gather the mathematics and statistics and computer science departments under one roof. It will also house the Rafik B. Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering, an all-University research institute.
“This is the science that’s going to change the way we behave, driving our behavior for the next 50 or 100 years,” says President Robert A. Brown.
