On Thursday, experts in a quiet, sunlit University of Houston classroom made concrete the vague field by giving examples of data science in action. The campus’s new institute hosted roughly 40 people, who listened to field leaders define the term, show how data science can be used in political science and demonstrate a model of coding for large-scale analysis.

UH announced its center in October, but the summer series beginning this month will be the first public events from the institute, meant to fortify the city’s entry into a field that has attracted significant interest around Texas and nationwide.
