Gov. Andrew Cuomo Joins Jim and Marilyn Simons to Dedicate Flatiron Institute
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo joined Simons Foundation co-founders Jim and Marilyn Simons on Sept. 6 to dedicate the foundation’s new Flatiron Institute, an intramural research division of the Simons Foundation that tackles big datasets — and big scientific questions — by developing cutting-edge computational methods.
Located across the street from the Simons Foundation’s New York City headquarters, the Flatiron Institute is an interdisciplinary research organization whose stated mission is to advance scientific research through computational methods, including data analysis, modeling and simulation.
“New scientific instrumentation has created datasets of unprecedented size and scope, and this is the perfect time to establish an institute dedicated to [their] exploitation,” said Jim Simons. . .
