Mission Statement

DISL’s interests are in the areas of data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI). Our research activities include both theoretical and applied studies aimed at developing prediction models of future health and life aided by technology and data intelligence. We leverage AI with a critical eye on causality, working on multi-domain, muti-layer big data –socioeconomic, ecological, clinical, and pathogen genomics. We are committed to a multi-cultural, equal opportunity educational and professional environment.

The National Science Foundation and the University of Florida present a premiere workshop in AI Governance in For-Profit and Not-for-Profit Organizations. Artificial intelligence (AI) has economic and social impact in significant areas of human life. Algorithms are increasingly used to generate predictions that feed into decisions about who is eligible for insurance coverage, approved for bank loans, and selected for job interviews.
