Data Science Day

Data Science happens every day.
And it happens all throughout Bielefeld University.

To demonstrate that the Bielefeld Center for Data Science (BiCDaS) has asked researchers, scholars and data workers throughout the university to show how and where they work with data. Each and every day.

The result has been a stunningly diverse exhibition in the university hall on May 23rd 2018. One could find out about data work on different parts of the data life cycle. From data recording, data preparation, over the actual analysis to the issues of storage, curating and data publication. In many cases even hands-on!

True to the motto "data first", the Data Science Day was as interdisciplinary as BiCDaS. Reasearches and scholars from all over the university as well as data workers from central institutions like the university library and BITS were available to the visitors for questions and discussion.

Scientific fields and topics which have been addressed were astronomy, biotechnology, psychology, physics, mathematics, eletronics, informatics, digital Humanities, machine learning, advanced statistics, high-performance computing (HPC), research data management (RDM), data science education, data presentations (data visualisation and beyond) and many more.

Data at Bielefeld University,
as diverse as the University itself.
