DATA-INSPIRE is a joint project of DIMACS and Rutgers’ Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics Departments.

About Us

This institute is premised on our belief that advances in data science principles are needed to impact the emerging paradigm of intelligent machines and their convergence with human society. This foundational understanding is needed to further improve the performance and better explain the operation of such machines so they can accomplish diverse, real-world tasks and interact effectively with people. To realize these advances, a new integration of mathematical, inferential, and algorithmic expertise is required. Thus, DATA-INSPIRE brings together mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists to catalyze a new foundational data-science community focused on the development of intelligent, interactive machines.
