Big Data Initiative

The Information Initiative at Duke

The Information Initiative at Duke (iiD) is a cross-school, multi-investigator, game-changing research and educational program designed to make big data make sense. iiD is organized to encourage crosspollination of ideas across disciplines, and to develop new forms of collaboration that will advance research and education across the full spectrum of disciplines at Duke. Through this effort we aim to:

  • Catalyze breakthrough, data-driven scholarship that addresses grand challenges in health care, public policy, financial markets, education, energy and the environment, and that expands the research frontier in the computational sciences  
  • Infuse a greater degree of computational expertise into the Humanities, Social Sciences, Life Sciences and Medicine
  • Transform undergraduate and graduate teaching through the introduction of new computational programs, vertically integrated cross-disciplinary teams, and development of co-curricular opportunities
