Organization profile

Data is at the heart of contemporary research, from large scale biological experiments to online social dynamics, opening a window to understand, predict and influence our most pertinent systems.

The Bar-Ilan Data Science Institute links researchers who collect large-scale data, with others who develop tools for its analysis, providing a diverse platform for cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Representing research from a range of different areas – computer science, math, biology, brain, law and the humanities – we wish to join strengths and work as a team to understand the world through data.


  • Developing new ways to transform the richness of Data into scientific predictions and applications
  • Bringing together researchers from broad disciplines to collaborate and create meaning from Data
  • Observing patterns in human behavior, health, technology and the environment
