Digital Information Technology

When Alfred P. Sloan Jr. created this foundation in 1934, he envisioned it would serve as a vehicle for the creation and dissemination of scientific and economic knowledge.  Few technological advances have revolutionized those activities more than the development of modern computing and the subsequent explosion in our ability to collect, manipulate, store, analyze, and transmit data.  Sloan's programs in Digital Technology explore how the internet and computing technology are creating new opportunities to empower the scientific enterprise and expand the public's access to knowledge.
