With the arrival of the Internet, including rapid increases in the capacity to transmit, communicate and process data and information, algorithms and data have become central objects of interest in computer science, data science, and economics. Data and digital information have become essential for the allocation and distribution of services and commodities worldwide, which includes the design of markets and resource allocation mechanisms.
From traffic navigation apps to social networks, algorithms and data have become essential. Even with the arrival of large language models that build algorithms on massive data sets, these developments in artificial intelligence have only recently accelerated. The question of how to collect, aggregate, and disseminate data among diverse individuals in a decentralized society is critical for the functioning of democracy, as well as fair and efficient markets.
CADMY’s goal is to initiate and support research and teaching around the fundamental questions that arise at the intersection of computer science, data science, economics, and computational social sciences. CADMY aims to support Yale faculty and students with their research in relevant areas and will serve as a platform to host visiting faculty and postdoctoral fellows, promoting ongoing academic engagement and advancement.
