UF to Begin Construction on Malachowsky Hall for Data Science & Information Technology

The University of Florida began 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.

“The fields of artificial intelligence and data science are of central importance in building a better world,” Malachowsky said. “I’m honored to further UF’s world-class capabilities in these areas, which it can share with current and future students, equipping them with the skills to do important, even life-changing work.”
