Areas of Excellence: a 360° expertise for an impactful Research
AI, Data Science & Business
Data Science for insights & value creation
Data science provides the essential tools for extracting knowledge from the data and supporting decisions both at individual and organisation levels. Research in this subarea covers the development and application of classical statistical modelling, data mining, machine learning, optimisation and operations research, social media analytics, and web analytics.
Ongoing research projects include:
- How to detect signs of depression on social media?
- How to predict with deep learning?
- How to use data streaming to make decision in financial markets?
- How to use machine learning methods to explain start-up failures?
