  10. 10. DS RC Realization: four aims Research: a platform for research in data science connecting people and methodologies. Infrastructure: a data-driven infrastructure for experimenting with realistic complex data sets. Valorization: a channel between scientific research and third party applications. Education: data-science curricula with realistic data experimentation throughout the program.
  11. 11. DS RC Research • Focus on research with a holistic view on data science – Connecting the different disciplines – From data to domain impact • Start – Seed projects: small projects bringing together two or more ICT disciplines • Workshops – Domain workshops: with all stakeholders define research topics leading to data science project proposals
  12. 12. DS RC Infrastructure “In a sense, the physical and technical infrastructure becomes invisible and the data themselves become the infrastructure – a valuable asset, on which science, technology, the economy and society can advance.” [“Riding the wave” EU High Level Expert Group] Shared domain driven tasks Shared large scale datasources Transparant access to distributed computing infrastructure Common tools and code bases
  13. 13. DS RC Valorization • Joint full projects – Within the DSRC – With industry / govermental organizations • Small-scale projects – From data and problem to solution with quick turnaround • Competitions – From data and problem to innovative solutions worked on by a number of teams • Spin-offs and startups
  14. 14. DS RC Education • Infrastructure yields platform for education in – Informatics • Information Science, Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, Computer Science, Business Analytics – Domain specific courses • E.g. Minor Data Science for X (your favorite discipline) – Commercial courses • The objective of DSRC – to introduce a full data science program • With hands-on experience – On real data and real problems or innovations
