Last week, the deans of MIT’s five Schools announced a new Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS), which will launch in July and be led by Electrical Engineering and Computer Science professor Munther Dahleh. IDSS will bring together social science and data science researchers and students to explore issues in energy, transportation, social networks, health care, and financial systems.

“IDSS will allow the deep, original thinking about the physical universe that is done by our scientists and engineers to come together with the rigorous work of MIT’s great social scientists and economists,” said Deborah Fitzgerald, dean of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences.

IDSS initiatives include an undergraduate statistics minor and an MIT center on statistics.
