Data-Driven Discovery

UTA will focus on research that integrates big data from multiple fields and will develop data analytics and science that explore data from a wide variety of sources. We will use data to discover and share new knowledge, as well as enhance current knowledge.

Data fuels important decisions at every level of society. The exponential growth and availability of big data presents numerous challenges and opportunities. It is voluminous, fast, increasingly complex, and comes in a range of formats.

But if managed effectively, big data can deliver powerful benefits. It can result in more accurate analyses in fields ranging from health care to genomics and business informatics to physics. More accurate analyses lead to more confident decision-making. And better decisions can mean greater operational efficiencies, cost reductions, and reduced risks.
