The increasing abundance of data in science and in industry creates many challenges and opportunities. Data science has grown to be a foundational discipline in information technology, allowing new insights from data and creating ever more intelligent applications. Simultaneously, it is becoming increasingly difficult to collect, clean and deliver the vast amounts of data and apply and maintain complex data science processes. Targeting these challenges, the discipline of data engineering has become equally foundational.
The 2019 newly established research school „Data Science and Engineering” unites top PhD students in all areas of data-driven research and technology, including scalable storage, stream processing, data cleaning, machine learning and deep learning, text processing, data visualization, digital health and more. We apply our research to many different use cases across the participating interdisciplinary research groups, joining forces whenever possible.
