More than five years ago, the National Science Foundation funded the creation of the Center for Dynamic Data Analytics (CCDA), an Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC), at Stony Brook University. Throughout the first phase of this I/UCRC, Stony Brook University became a leader in developing industry research partnerships, with Department of Computer Science (CS) chair Arie Kaufman serving as CDDA’s co-director.

With the goal of building on the success of the CCDA, in February 2017 Kaufman and fellow researchers were awarded new funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), paving the way for Stony Brook to become a university partner in the I/UCRC Center for Visual and Decision Informatics (CVDI). 

Receiving co-author status on a research paper is an honor typically reserved for faculty researchers, graduate or Ph.D. students. Researchers carefully select the few students they take on to work with them on a project, and not every project leads to a published or presented paper.
