Data Science

Launch to the Future: Quantum Internet
Under Secretary of Energy for Science Paul Dabbar discusses Quantum Internet at UChicago.

The technological revolution has led to an explosion of data in domains of knowledge ranging from medicine to social science and from commerce to high energy physics. Data science is the study of extracting value from data. It combines insights, techniques, and tools from computer science, statistics, social science, and elsewhere. The minor program in data science is intended to equip students with computational and analytical comprehension and tools that will allow them to work on a variety of data-driven problems in any discipline. The program also emphasizes important issues in data privacy, ethics, and communication.
