Vast amounts of data being generated across all segments of society. If taken advantage of, these data offer an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate scientific discovery, to improve healthcare and wellbeing, and to strengthen our communities. Data Science is an interdisciplinary field concerning the scientific methods, systems and workflows to obtain insights from data.
Data Science has the potential to affect all aspects of human activity. We embrace this development and are preparing a new generation of data scientists, scholars and entrepreneurs who work in a collaborative manner to tackle the world’s most pressing problems.
Research at IDS focuses on:
IDS aims to tackle impactful research problems through multidisciplinary teams involving students, researchers, partners, and stakeholders inside and out of the university. We aim to train the next generation of data scientists to be even more collaborative and interdisciplinary.
