UF has begun construction on the Malachowsky Hall for Data Science & Information Technology, a 263,000-square-foot academic building located in the heart of UF’s main campus that will connect students and researchers from across disciplines and create a hub for advances in computing, communication and cyber-technologies with the potential for profound societal impact.
The building, anchored by a gift from UF alumnus Chris Malachowsky as well as funding from the state, will provide collaboration space and will focus on the application of computing, communication and cyber technologies to a broad spectrum of areas including health care, pharmacology, security, technology development and fundamental science. Malachowsky, alongside Silicon Valley computer company NVIDIA, which he co-founded, is a key partner for UF in the artificial intelligence space, including the university’s initiative to integrate AI across curriculum. The building is slated for completion around April 2023.
