Welcome to the University of Toronto Data Sciences Institute

The Data Sciences Institute (DSI) is a multi-divisional, tri-campus, multidisciplinary hub for data science activity at the University of Toronto (U of T).

The DSI facilitates research connections, fosters innovation, and enhances teaching and learning in data sciences, including in emerging data-driven disciplines with a highly collaborative, inclusive approach.

We bring together researchers and trainees from across the University, its affiliated research institutes, industry and beyond to support data sciences research, innovation, collaboration, and training to translate promising ideas into real-world solutions and advance the data sciences, themselves. The DSI enhances and capitalizes on U of T’s established data science leadership in a city renowned for its data science expertise.

The DSI facilitates research connections, open science, and reproducibility practices in new and creative ways, within a culture of inclusion and respect.

The DSI drives data-driven discovery by supporting research in innovative methodology development and application.
