Data Sciences


Data sciences are fundamentally transforming nearly every area of engineering, science, and society. The University of Washington’s Electrical Engineering faculty are making fundamental contributions to many different areas of data sciences, including machine learning, AI, optimization, information theory, computer vision, and speech and natural language processing. Many of our data sciences faculty hold secondary appointments in applied mathematics, computer science and engineering, bioengineering, and other departments, and are active participants in cross-disciplinary institutes such as UW’s eScience Institute, the Allen Institute of Artificial Intelligence, and the Bloedel Hearing Research Center.
