Data science is an emerging field that is roughly defined as the study, development, and application of methods that reveal new insights from data. UW–Madison recognizes that data are reshaping our world and that the future of data science will be shaped by insights from all other disciplines. As a leading research institution it is important to bring the power of data science to all fields of study.

Whether you are a student seeking training or coursework, a researcher looking for collaborators, or a member of the community looking for insights and information, we invite you to learn more about and engage with UW–Madison’s cross-campus collaborations in data science.
