The initiative's focus extends beyond STEM fields and includes applications in all fields where data can help to answer important questions.

The DSI has three primary missions: 1) supporting data-driven research in different domains, 2) advancing research in data science itself, and 3) training researchers in data science. The DSI serves as a hub for an emerging community of diverse researchers and students (intellectually & culturally) to come together to collaborate in multidisciplinary teams and to learn about the rapidly evolving state-of-the-art in data science tools, methods and applications.
