New Data Science Center at Cornell

Cornell University, a NYSERNet member opened a Center for Data Science for Enterprise and Society will unify programs across the university to enhance research in the fast-growing and increasingly important field of data science. The center will initially focus on questions grounded in data, generated by human activity, including computational social science, digital agriculture, urban infrastructure, and the interplay of economics and computer science; other focal points will include issues of privacy, security and fairness. The center will administer a research assistant professor program, annually hiring three early-career data scientists for three-year appointments. Read more here:
