The VISTA Collaboratory completes a high performance supercomputing system on a massive scale and is one of only a handful of similar labs in the U.S.
In recognition of a $10 million lead gift to the Institute of Data Science, the institute's new landmark building will be named for the Wegman family.
This expanded commitment will include the creation of an Institute for Data Science, construction of a state-of-the-art building, and as many as 20 new faculty members with expertise in the field.
All the data in the world means nothing without professionals trained to harness its power. Rochester offers a dozen degree programs in this growing field.
The University of Rochester is advancing basic and applied research in data science. Interdisciplinary teams across computer science, medicine, and all the sciences are harnessing the power of data to improve our health, create new industries, and expand fundamental knowledge.
The Rochester, N.Y. region and New York State are poised to be national leaders in analyzing and commercializing the limitless uses of data to improve the quality of life and fuel economic growth. New York State recently provided support to create a new Rochester Center of Excellence in Data Science (CoE) at the University of Rochester. Complementing the Institute of Data Science, its goals are to leverage basic research, training, and technology development in this field and to drive regional economic development.
