A hub on all activities in data science

We are very pleased to welcome the University of Vienna | Research Network Data Science to the DIO network!



Data Science @ Uni Vienna is a research network at the University of Vienna that presents a hub on all activities in data science at the University of Vienna. Their primary focus is to bring researchers from different areas together to work on and solve several of the challenges that this new field presents. To this end the research network will primarily be driven by application problems whose solution requires novel methodological developments. The main research challenges to be tackled by this research network can be summarized as (a) application challenges, (b) methodological challenges, and (c) translational challenges. The research network specifically focuses on problems arising in one of the following five domains, Astronomy, Digital Humanities, Finance, Industry 4.0, Medical Sciences.  While these areas are broad, they have in common that they are data-driven and use similar methods from computer science, mathematics, and statistics.

To me, a defining characteristic of the field of „data science“ is the application of cutting edge computational tools to problems around data experienced in the real world of industry, governance and non-profits. So the Research Network Data Science at the University of Vienna is eager to work with practitioners to understand real world problems and work together to find solutions. We’re excited to get to work helping make data work for the companies and institutions of DIO!“ – Drew Dimmery
