Yale’s Institute for Foundations of Data Science (FDS) for also known as the Kline Tower Institute, was created to advance research in the mathematical, algorithmic, and statistical foundations of data science and their application to other disciplines. The institute integrates faculty from departments and schools across the university to help scholars apply new methods of data science to their research. In turn, exposure to the unmet needs of domain scientists inspires advances in foundational research. The institute will hold its activities at varying venues around campus. In August 2023, FDS will move into Kline Tower and provide a venue for data scientists to meet, learn about recent advances, discover exciting problems, host visitors, and hold seminars, workshops, and conferences.
