ABOUT US

sdsc-about

Data science has become extremely important internationally, with the majority of top-tier international research and teaching institutions investing significantly in dedicated centers and programs. In this context, the ETH Domain launches the Initiative for Data Science in Switzerland to accelerate data science through both an expansion of education and research, and the provision of infrastructure for data science users across disciplines. The Initiative creates both Master courses in data science at EPFL and ETH Zurich, and the Swiss Data Science Center (SDSC), a joint venture between EPFL and ETH Zurich. The mission of the SDSC is to accelerate the adoption of data science and machine learning techniques broadly within academic disciplines of the ETH Domain, the Swiss academic community at large, and the industrial sector.

Embedded R&D collaboration

We engage in academic and industrial collaborations requiring large-scale distributed data processing (Big & Fast Data) and/or advanced analytics (machine learning & statistics) combined with an in-depth knowledge in select domains

Domain-specific Insights as a Service

We provide secure access to our cloud-hosted analytics platform - the Insights Factory, a highly scalable open software platform offering a one-stop-shop for hosting and exploring curated, calibrated and possibly anonymized data at scale, at-rest or in-motion.

Open (Data) Science

The Insights Factory offers user-friendly tooling and services to help with the adoption of Open Science, fostering research productivity and excellence.

Masters in Data Science (Fall 2017)

The rapid rise of data science has created the need for both thoroughly trained data science specialists with a new profile of expertise, and basic knowledge of data science methods for researchers and practitioners in a broad range of disciplines. The number of students enrolled in data science related courses increases rapidly. Responding to this demand and interest, master courses in data science at EPFL and ETH Zurich and a catalogue of service courses targeted towards groups of application areas are being set up.

 

The goal of the new master courses in data science is to produce graduates with thorough knowledge in data science methods and topics ranging from mathematical foundations, analytics, to software, systems, and real-world applications of the methods.
