Data Science is about drawing useful knowledge from large and complex data. Advances in Artificial Intelligence are greatly dependent on Data Science. The Center for Data Science of the University of Bergen is an interdisciplinary center across several faculties focusing on research and education in central aspects of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. Our current activity involves machine learning, algorithmic foundations, visual data science, statistics, bioinformatics, and behavioral science.

Exploration and analysis of large biomolecular datasets with spatio-temporal or multidimensional traits

The talk will be focusing mainly on spatio-temporal data such as molecular dynamics simulations which are unfavorably known to be hard to visualize. In addition, the speaker will touch upon other biochemical datasets where the “curse of dimensionality” poses the biggest visualization challenge.


Centre for Social Algorithms går videre til neste runde for SFF

Forskningssenteret vil studere algoritmer som fungerer best for mennesker og samfunnet. Nå kan de bli et Senter for Fremragende Forskning (SFF).
