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