Last Thursday, Gov. Cuomo announced that the state will provide $22.5 million for the creation of the Rochester Data Science Consortium at the University of Rochester.  The project, which is expected to result in 184 new jobs, includes the construction of the brand new 60,000 square-foot building to house the new consortium.

Gov. Cuomo said:

“Data science is the new tech frontier, and with this consortium, we are further strengthening the Finger Lakes’ role as a leading hub for optics, imaging research and commercialization to create high-paying jobs and support the local economy. Across New York, we are investing in new research and technology to cement our status as a global destination for innovation and enterprise and drive economic growth for generations to come.”
