Data Science

Data Science is an interdisciplinary field that uses a variety of techniques to create value based on extracting knowledge and insights from available data. The successful and responsible application of these methods highly depends on a good understanding of the application domain, taking into account ethics, business models, and human behavior.

DATA IS THE NEW GOLD

According to recent estimates, 90 percent of the data in the world today has been created in the past two years. New technologies, tools and methods are required to make sense of this avalanche of data. The growing importance of artificial intelligence is one of the results of this trend.

Data scientists use state of the art mathematics and computer science methods such as statistics, machine learning, data mining and predictive analytics. This is combined with application domains such as humanities, ethics, operations and healthcare. This results in identifying patterns in various data sources and answering questions with an accuracy and speed that were previously not possible. As a result, data science is becoming an integral part of most types of engineering and scientific research.

Data Science Center

Data Science Center Eindhoven (DSCE) is now part of the Eindhoven AI Systems Institute (EAISI) that brings together all AI activities of the TU/e. Top researchers from various research groups work together to create new and exciting AI applications with a direct impact on the real world.

All this in close collaboration with our student teams and representatives from industry. TU/e now has many job opportunities for AI talent.
