Carleton University is actively involved in data sciences, with over 170 researchers from five faculties and 26 university departments, schools and institutes currently engaged in research involving big data, data analytics and social sentiment analytics.
The Carleton University Institute for Data Science (CUIDS) supports the growth of interdisciplinary research and graduate studies in data science by serving as a hub for collaborative research and by hosting free public events throughout the school year, including its annual Data Day conference, which sees upwards of 500 attendees.
Bringing Together Leading Experts in Data Science
Hosted by the Institute for Data Science, Data Day is an annual conference that celebrates the latest developments in data science and analytics research. The event includes presentations by Carleton researchers and industry experts, a keynote address, panel discussion and speed networking session, as well as a poster competition to showcase graduate student research in data science across all disciplines.
Data Day 6.0 is underway @Carleton_U with 500+ people registered. Off to a great start with a keynote by Anil Arora, Chief Statistician of Canada and the signing of an MOU to reaffirm Carleton’s ever growing partnership with Statistics Canada. Lots of great student posters too! pic.twitter.com/3EROFrGgAr
