Informatics & Data Science Research

Informatics & Data Science at CCI explores very large data sources including selection of data and evaluation of information quality, and application of techniques related to data mining, visual analytics, social-media trend spotting, human-computer interaction, data analysis, and information policy. Our Informatics & Data Science faculty regularly publish in the top journals and conferences in the discipline and work closely with students and industry to develop state-of-the-art research in theory and applications.
