Computing Sciences at Bocconi University
Computing sciences are contributing to an ongoing process that is breaking down disciplinary barriers among hard sciences and is seeing social sciences and economics to widely adopt methodologies related to computational science and modeling.
Computing Sciences: Hard Sciences That Break Down Disciplinary Barriers
A Department has been created at Bocconi to deal with Stem disciplines with a multidisciplinary spirit and to dialogue with the social sciences and economics. Artificial intelligence and machine learning will contribute to innovative research.
17 New Faculty Members Will Help Bocconi Blend Knowledge
Many of the scholars arriving in September work at the boundary between multiple disciplines, where innovation is most vibrant.
