About the Halicioglu Data Science Institute: Data Science has emerged as an area central to advances in our understanding of nature, improving the quality life and a healthy society. Data collection, stewardship, and analyses are already integrated into the infrastructure for commerce, healthcare, governance, and education. These ubiquitous practical uses of digital data have raised awareness of the need to further develop the underlying scientific and technological basis for understanding and exploiting data. UC San Diego is pursuing a strategy for advancing Data Science that builds upon its unique strengths in creating interdisciplinary research areas that span multiple disciplines and departments. Funded with a $75M endowment, the mission of the Halicioglu Data Science Institute (HDSI) is to explore the scientific foundations for the new field of data science. These foundations include the principles, methods, and tools that will enable us to understand the nature of digital data, and also the intersections between this new field and existing disciplines of human enquiry. HDSI is a new strategic academic institute tasked with hosting and coordination of Data Science research and education activities at the University of California, San Diego. Among HDSI academic programs are a Data Science major and minor currently with nearly 600 undergraduate students. Prospective HDSI faculty members will have the option of a joint appointment with one or more academic departments of the University in order to bolster the interdisciplinary nature of Data Science.
