Data science is an interdisciplinary and holistic approach that aims at turning data into knowledge and value. It includes
- the extraction, preparation, exploration, transformation, storage and retrieval of quantitative (“structured”) and qualitative (“unstructured”) data
as well as
- the explanation, interpretation and exploitation of results using techniques from
- statistics, computer science and a wide range of application areas.
In addition, data science focuses on the (further) development of new methods and competencies as well as on research data management and data security.
Bielefeld Center for Data Science (BiCDaS) is a university-wide initiative encompassing a wide range of disciplines interested in data science. It combines existing expertise in
- statistics, machine learning and research data management
as well as in application areas such as (in alpha order)
- biology, business administration, computer science, data management, economics, information technology, digital humanities, law, librarianship, linguistics, physics, psychology, public health and sociology
in order to turn quantitative (“structured”) and qualitative (“unstructured”) data into knowledge and value.
The center acts as a focal point for researchers and students who enjoy the profound exchange on new challenges and solutions in data science.
