INTEGRATIVE DATA SCIENCE INITIATIVE NEWSLETTER


MESSAGE TO THE PURDUE COMMUNITY FROM THE INTEGRATIVE DATA SCIENCE INITIATIVE

Nearly one year ago, Purdue University set the vision to establish Purdue at the forefront of data science and convened working groups in both research and education to advance the effort. The groups hosted four campus-wide forums during Fall 2017, and approximately 180 faculty and staff attendees contributed significant input regarding research, application and educational directions. From the inputs received, the working groups recommended three action points for Purdue’s Integrative Data Science Initiative: 

1.) Support structured research efforts in data science theory and fundamentals, data-driven discovery, and data science applications. 

2.) Establish a Data Science Education Ecosystem that incorporates data science across campus with the goal that every undergraduate complete her or his studies with relevant professional skills in data science. 

3.) Create a physical presence for IDSI with the goal of promoting creative collaboration through proximity and physical interaction.
