DIRAC is creating an environment where scientists can harness interdisciplinary expertise to solve some of the most difficult questions facing Astronomy today. It provides an interaction space between Astrophysics, Computer Science, Statistics, and other disciplines. It is a place where ideas across many disciplines come together and mature; a laboratory for devising new ways of extracting knowledge from complex systems. By bridging disciplines and developing a fundamentally new way of science through computation, we deliver on the scientific potential of a new generation of telescopes and experiments that will explore the inner and outer reaches of our universe.
