• Statistics and Data Science Conference (SDSCon 2018)

    SDSCon 2018 is the second annual celebration of MIT's statistics and data science community. On Friday, April 20, 2018, it will feature presentations from established academic leaders, industry innovators and rising stars in the field in Bartos Theater, MIT Media Lab.
  • Data Science and Big Data Analytics: Making Data Driven Decisions

    This seven-week course launches February 5, 2018. This course was developed by over ten MIT faculty members at IDSS. It is specially designed for data scientists, business analysts, engineers, and technical managers looking to learn the latest theories and strategies to harness data.
  • Statistical and Computational Tradeoffs

    Computational limitations of statistical problems have largely been ignored or simply overcome by ad hoc relaxations techniques.

The Statistics and Data Science Center is an MIT-wide focal point for advancing research and education programs related to statistics and data science. The Center was created in 2015 with the goal of formalizing and consolidating efforts in statistics at MIT. The Center’s academic mission is to host and develop new academic programs, from a minor to a PhD in statistics and data science.
