Tufts seeks to develop a University-wide, interdisciplinary center dedicated to data-intensive research and pedagogy, studying the science of data and its uses in application domains that span the breadth of the university. Such a center will build on existing strengths at Tufts and provide a structure to help realize the promise of the Tufts T10 Strategic Plan.
As part of the University-wide initiative to launch a Data Intensive Study Center (DISC), a third symposium will be held this November. The committee is currently organizing a list of distinguished speakers for the event. Confirmed speakers include: Henry Kautz, David Lazer, and AnnaLee Saxenian.
Details for this fall’s symposium, speakers and program lineup will be published in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit our DISC website for more information on the purpose and goals of this University-wide initiative.
