Data Science Center Mission
As a hub for research, training and knowledge transfer in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, we aim to foster both technical advances and their permeation to society, industry and other areas of scientific enquiry.
The center serves as a meeting place for our affiliated faculty, which includes world-leading researchers in Statistics, Operations Research, Applied Economics and Artificial Intelligence, and for their international network of collaborators.
Specific activities include hosting research projects funded by public and private institutions related to data science methodology and applications, a program for visiting scholars, and research events (seminars, scientific conferences, BGSE Summer Forum in Data Science).
We host training activities at different levels. The center coordinates the MSc in Data Science, created in 2014 as one of the first of its kind in Europe to produce graduates who can help tackle the data analysis challenges shaping our present and future.
We also organize regular training workshops within the BGSE Summer School, Winter School, and specific training for researchers and corporations. The workshops cover topics ranging from applied data science to advanced methodology and theoretical issues.
