New Institute for Data Science launches

(20 September 2019)

Our new Institute for Data Science (IDAS), will launch on Monday, 30 September. IDAS will provide a multi-disciplinary platform for researchers across all of our Faculties to explore new ideas in data science, connect subject-specific knowledge in novel ways, and to transform our view of the world around us - nature, society, and culture. It’s open to everyone interested in harnessing the increasing volume, velocity, and variety of data for both blue-sky research and concrete applications. To register for the internal launch event or to find out more, please visit here or for more about IDAS visit the web page.

IDAS will run monthly conferences or seminars aimed at a general academic audience, with nationally and internationally recognised speakers. It will also run bi-weekly drop-in sessions to share ideas and best practice.
