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.

CEDAS is the main contact point for NORA, the Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Research Consortium, at the University of Bergen.
