SIKS- Course “Kaleidoscope Data Science ” 2018


From June 06 to 07 2018, the School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS) organizes the new course “Kaleidoscope Data Science”. The course will be given in English and is part of the Tutorial Program for SIKS-PhD -students. Although these courses are primarily intended for SIKS-PhD-students, other participants are not excluded. However, their number of passes will be restricted and depends on the number of SIKS-PhD -students taking the course.

Data Science is one of the most penetrating research trends of the last few years, and is finding more and more applications. Data Science techniques are also getting to be used as an instrument for other research purposes. The objective of this tutorial is to provide a kaleidoscopic overview of current trends, for both students in data science and students whose research is not primarily data science. Some presentations will take an application or industry perspective, some present ongoing research. The first day features several presentations on the data aspect (data quality, data cleansing), the second day is focused on analytics (such as an introduction into deep learning).

We appreciate active participation of the students. On the second day, we organize a poster session. You are strongly encouraged to prepare a poster about your research and take it with you – especially if your research is data science or related. .
