Computing and Data

As one of the primary themes of the Discovery Partners Institute, the Computing and Data working group will serve a foundational role in the DPI. The group aims to provide efficient computing and data technologies to all other working groups while facilitating leading-edge research and education initiatives.

Computing and Data members also will assist other working groups as they examine topics including the effects of emerging technologies on culture and society, workforce issues in the technology sector, technological innovation and issues concerning intellectual property, and public policy implications regarding computing and data.

The Computing and Data working group will

  • Enable high-visibility and impactful purpose-driven research with tangible results
  • Promote disruptive and novel trustworthy computing and data paradigms, as well as translational research
  • Further the pivotal role played by computing and data science and technologies in academic research and innovation
  • Contribute toward efficient computing and data technologies across the other DPI themes and cross-cutting areas
