Technological innovation has created a fundamental discontinuity: individuals are now decentralized mass producers and - at the same time - consumers of data. Data Science emerges from the need to come to terms with such discontinuity and understand how it is transforming the basic component processes of science: observing, predicting, measuring, testing, and replicating. Data Science adds "discovering" as a systematic element that needs to be included within this on-going process of knowledge development.


IDIDS was established at USI in recognition of the new era of data-driven scientific discovery. IDIDS is committed to addressing the unmet demand in both research, and multidisciplinary education that have surfaced as a result. IDIDS approaches all data - big, small and hidden - by collaborating across multiple fields of study tapping into several skill sets.
