Welcome to From Data to Decision (FD2D)


We are an international group of researchers and innovators at 22 leading academic institutions and technology companies in North America, Europe and Asia, that develop and study digital transformation and artificial intelligence applications across various academic disciplines and industrial sectors as well as their impact on society.

We built and launched an international Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program that supports the training and mentoring of multidisciplinary teams of highly qualified graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in digital transformation and artificial intelligence from Canada and abroad.

Yes, our acronym FD2D is inspired by the fictional robot character R2-D2.
