Data Science and Information Technology

This research cluster includes the study and practice of extracting information and knowledge from data that can be used for medical, financial, scientific and engineering applications. These focus groups are engaged in bioinformatics, medical informatics, image processing, data mining, solar terrestrial physics, transportation, financial management, life sciences and healthcare.

The cybersecurity group studies how to design secure cyber systems and to improve cyber Information and Communications Technology (ICT). ICT is shaping many aspects of society and the economy and is evolving rapidly to provide access to unprecedented amounts of information, anytime and anywhere, from any type of device. The NSF report indicates more than $13 billion in university R&D expenditures in 2011. Currently, there are 7.4 billion mobile devices connected globally with mobile data traffic reaching 2.5 exabytes per month. It is expected that by the year 2050 more than 100 billion devices will be connected across the globe. The scope of this proposed cluster addresses NEA and NAS Grand Challenges including secure cyberspace, virtual reality and tools for scientific discovery
