Open Source IP

Stanford Data Science Initiative Open Source IP

Modern data science is revolutionizing research and changing society.  The Stanford Data Science Initiative (SDSI) focuses on the fundamental challenges of data, computation, information, and statistics.  The goal is to conduct world-leading research in data science and its applications, in an open and collaborative environment.  The ability to share ideas, tools, data, and results openly and without barriers is essential for collaboration with researchers at Stanford and elsewhere, and essential for having impact in the data science community.

SDSI researchers will use and develop open source software, and it is the intention of all SDSI researchers that any software released will be released under an open source model, such as the BSD open source license.  SDSI is open to all Stanford faculty who share this goal.
