The Data Science Research Centre addresses the problem of utilizing the massive amounts of data coming available. Data management is a core area in computer science, and data processing is a core activity within software engineering. Big Data, data analytics, and data-driven software tools offer tremendous opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration with the social sciences, humanities, health and life sciences, ecology and the environment, culture and heritage, and engineering as research in all these disciplines has Big Data to analyse.
What is Big Data?
The Data Science Research Centre will promote open data in the University community, and more broadly, to business and government.
The Data Science Research Centre will promote collaboration, promote training of highly-qualified personnel, and bring together academics, industry, and government.
