Center for Data Science
University of Bergen
Data Science is about extracting useful information from large and complex data. This research area is becoming increasingly crucial for many aspects of society. The University of Bergen has several departments across its faculties that conduct research in Data Science. For the Department of informatics, the establishment of a center for research and education in Data Science has been a priority, based on our rich experience in visual data science and data science in bioinformatics. The first step in this direction was taken with the establishment of our research group in machine learning. Our commitment in this direction was recently further stregthened with the ERC consolidator grant awarded to Saket Saurabh on algorithmic research related to data science. At the same time, the departments of mathematics and of information and media sciences, as well as the faculties of humanities and of medicine have buildt competence in Data Science over the years. The Center for Data Science, CEDAS, is built to unify and coordinate these efforts. Our aim is to be a leading research center in Data Science both nationally and internationally.
CEDAS is a research Center for Data Science at the University of Bergen, coordinated by the Department of informatics.
