Simons Center for Data Analysis
Has anyone heard of the new Simons Center for Data Analysis?
Neither had I until just now. But some guy named Leslie Greengard, who is a distinguished mathematician and computer scientist, just got named its director (hat tip Peter Woit).
Please inform me if you know more about this center. I got nothing except this tiny description:
As SCDA’s director, Greengard will build and lead a team of scientists committed to analyzing large-scale, rich data sets and to developing innovative mathematical methods to examine such data.
