The New Science of Digital Transformation

The Digital Transformation Institute is a research consortium dedicated to accelerating the benefits of artificial intelligence for business, government, and society.

The institute engages the world’s leading scientists to conduct research and train practitioners in the Science of Digital Transformation, which operates at the intersection of artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing, internet of things, big data analytics, organizational behavior, public policy, and ethics.

Established in March 2020, the DTI consortium consists of C3 AI, Microsoft Corporation, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, University of California, Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, National Center for Supercomputing Applications, Princeton University, Stanford University, and University of Chicago. The Institute is jointly managed and hosted by University of California, Berkeley and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
