UT Austin Launches Institute to Harness the Data Revolution

November 06, 2019

Advances in machine learning are announced every day, but efforts to fundamentally rethink the core algorithms of AI are rare. The University of Texas at Austin has received a three-year, $1.5 million National Science Foundation TRIPODS (Transdisciplinary Research in Principles of Data Science) award to establish a new institute on the foundations of data science. The institute will coordinate foundational research in AI and data science across several university departments, launch a large-scale workshop and signature seminar series, and provide seed funding for a number of graduate and post-doctoral fellowships in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
