Invitation to the kick-off event of HiData - Helsinki Centre for Data Science

Data science, i.e., extraction of knowledge and insights from data, is important across many fields of science. HiData, Helsinki Centre for Data Science, aims to create a world-class research and research-based education hub of data science in Helsinki, as a joint effort between the University of Helsinki and Aalto University. HiData builds on the existing, strong research in various areas of data science, and aims to provide novel synergies across disciplines. HiData is funded in 2017-2021 as part of the profiling measures of the Academy of Finland, the University of Helsinki and Aalto University, and will get to full speed during 2018.

The kick-off event will present plans for HiData as well as a range of examples of data science within the participating universities. It is also a great opportunity to network with other academics with interest in data science.

Anyone interested in data science research or education is welcome to join the HiData network! Registration by Nov 23rd:
