Computational and Data Systems Initiative logo


The Computational and Data Systems Initiative (CDSI) aims to connect, complement and, ultimately, amplify the rich ecosystem of McGill investments at the nexus where computing, data, and systems meet – particularly around AI and data science.  Leveraging expertise across a spectrum of computational and statistical areas, and throughout a diverse ecosystem of domain areas, CDSI fosters multidisciplinary, data-driven efforts aimed at unraveling some of today’s most vexing mysteries and addressing many of life’s most pressing challenges.
