Research & Career-Building
Data analytics & data science lovers should start with the Comp Sci powerhouses. MIT has the massive Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS) with multiple labs, centers, and collaborations. Harvard has the Center for Research in Computation and Society (CRCS), Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS), and Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) scientific programs. But you’ll also find valuable resources at BU’s Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences (CDS) and UMass Amherst’s Center for Data Science.
Boston is a popular destination for prestigious analytics & business conferences, so you should have no trouble meeting experts in the field. Better yet, you’ll able to attend a number of homegrown events like the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, Data Summit, and Open Data Science Conference (ODSC) East. Or you could take advantage of scores of local meetups—many of them focus on specific areas of interest (e.g. AI).
