The MIT Future of Data initiative, being developed by CSAIL and the MIT Internet Policy Research Initiative (IPRI), aims to bring state-of-the-art MIT computer science research together with world-leading public policy expertise and engagement in order to achieve key goals, such as:

  • Creating new policy-informed, technical approaches to today’s privacy, cybersecurity, and data challenges
  • Measuring cyber risk with the innovative SCRAM platform
  • Leading a global dialogue with policymakers, civil society, and industry leaders as we help shape the future of privacy and data governance
  • Developing new educational opportunities related to data governance technology and public policy
Join the mailing list to learn how the research initiative is leading technical research on privacy-enhancing data systems and analytic techniques, create a policy dialogue with extensive public engagement, and develop new educational opportunities related to data governance technology and public policy.

What is visual computing? This field of research—sometimes called vision and graphics—covers the union of computer vision, graphics, and imaging. Research in visual computing continues to grow and expand, especially at MIT, and the technologies being invented at CSAIL right now are sure to have a major impact on industry to come just as they have in the past. 

This initiative focuses on applications of the latest machine learning (ML) technologies, resolving the current challenges which limit the abilities of ML, and addressing professional development skills that will help prepare a company’s workforce for this digital transformation.

This initiative aims to advance the state-of-the-art in collaboration with select industry partners to address the hardest problems facing the finance industry today and develop the next generation of impactful technologies that will open up new business models, broaden access, gain new data insights, and improve security.

“…information technology is at the center of a lot of trust gaps that we face in society today. Our aim is to make sure that we have the technical infrastructure necessary to address these issues and that the design of the infrastructure is informed by public policy needs.”
