The Center for Data Science fosters innovative research, education, industry collaboration, and public service to make UMass Amherst a destination and partner-of-choice for research in data science. We help companies and organizations meet their growing demand for well-trained data scientists, promote economic development, and support a thriving community of working data scientists in Western Massachusetts.
While summertime research efforts continue, everyone is actively planning to resume in-person campus life at UMass Amherst by the time the fall semester starts on September 1. The Center for Data Science (CDS) team will begin transitioning back to our campus workspaces very soon. I’m hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to safely restart the many face-to-face activities, programs, and collaborations that make the College of Information and Computer Sciences an intellectually stimulating environment for data science research, teaching, and learning.
