About Us

The human genome has been mapped, tornadoes are being predicted with greater accuracy, complex situations are being used to design and test cars, planes and space vehicles before fabrication — all of these innovations are made possible by revolutions in science and engineering driven by the use of big data and computation.

Decoding the human genome. Modeling natural phenomenon. Evaluating the impact of major disasters. All involve computational manipulation of large datasets. Analyzing "big data" has become vital across virtually all areas of science and engineering and we are focused on supporting research that explains the science of these complex systems.
ICDS is a partnership between UB’s Computational Data Sciences (CDSE) program and UB’s Center for Computation Research (CCR). ICDS was formed to better respond to the demand for skilled workers who can thrive in the rapidly evolving fields of information technology and data science.
Our research inspires and is inspired by ongoing research in living systems, energy systems, social systems, material systems and financial systems.
The University at Buffalo has three campuses: the North Campus in suburban Amherst, the South Campus on Main Street in a North Buffalo neighborhood and the growing Downtown Campus, encompassing several buildings in downtown Buffalo.
The Buffalo-Niagara region is a major metropolitan area with a diverse blend of communities, each with its own distinct character and all united in a rich panorama of life.
