Accelerating research through strategic partnerships
AFIDSI partners with campus researchers and research teams to overcome data science challenges, such as aggregating and curating data from multiple sources and building out research pipelines. This collaboration adds depth to research, enabling investigation of new questions.
As the campus and state shut down in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, AFIDSI responded to the need for mathematical modeling to guide policy decisions and public health outreach. Within weeks, the institute had convened a team of leaders and experts from across the U.S.
American Family Insurance has partnered with UW through AFIDSI to support fundamental data science research. The American Family Funding Initiative provides research awards of up to $100,000, with research teams based in departments across the UW-Madison campus.
