“I want every student who comes through our programs, whether they are in science, business, the humanities or the arts, to have a solid grounding in technology and the ethics of the work that they do,” Carol L. Folt, USC President said. “We will integrate digital literacy across disciplines to create responsible leaders for the workforce of the future.”

Ishwar K. Puri, USC Senior Vice President for Research and Innovation said “This endeavor is a tremendous opportunity to apply new computing tools to accelerate and expand the impact of scientific discovery. It is not only the ability to solve problems that sets this apart, but the speed with which it can be done.”
