Graduate student Jordan Hashemi explains why he choose to come to Duke—in part because of iiD and Duke's strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research.
An article published by the Atlantic describes Deputy Director of iiD Jerry Reiter's research program on methods for sharing data in ways that protect the confidentiality of data subjects' identities and sensitive attributes. This work comes out of grants supported by the National Science Foundation and is associated with two iiD projects that Jerry leads.
An update from our Lineage Logistics internship team on how they spent July 4:
“We grilled burgers while our physicist explained analytical and numerical methods for solving the heat equation. Anne Talkington and Rachel Yin worked with Chris Eckman, one of our analysts, to implement in Matlab. Fun times all around.
Most of our math is done with dry erase crayon on my windows, with the SF skyline in the background. It's how we roll.”

Launching this fall, “Specialization in Data Analytics for Business” will help everyday professionals make the most of Big Data. The proposal for the course series arose from a meeting organized by the Information Initiative at Duke (iiD).
More than 50 students—majoring in everything from political science to engineering—gathered on the third floor of Gross Hall for a lunch to share status updates on their Data+ projects.
