The peril and the promise of networks of people connected by machines is becoming ever more apparent in our daily lives, as we begin to see a succession of impacts.

From the flash crash to Arab Spring to the Northeast Blackout to the polarized US political landscape. Human systems are behaving in ever-more-unstable fashions.

At the same time, new frontiers of opportunity are opening up in healthcare, in finance, and in society.
The mission of MIT Connection Science is to revolutionize technology-mediated human networks through analysis, prediction, data-driven design, and evaluation.
