Solutions at the Intersection of Data and the Public Interest

The Institute is dedicated to the design and application of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and advanced statistical analysis to public interest issues facing our country and the world today. We explore new applications of existing technologies and develop our own approaches to solving complex problems within the context of a broad range of domains related to data. Our research portfolio is rapidly expanding as we seek to identify new areas where advanced analytics can help better assist our community, state, and nation.
