What is Data Science?

Data Science encompasses the statistical and computational techniques, technologies, and methodologies developed to enable the most recent paradigm of discovery, i.e., data-driven discovery (aka Big Data), complementing the discovery paradigms of theory, experimentation, and simulation.

Data science is currently deployed as one of the main approaches for making a discovery in a wide set of applications in almost all academic disciplines and industry sectors, including health informatics, precision, and personalized medicine, engineering, business analytics, geosciences, social studies, intelligent transportation, and cybersecurity, to name a few. In turn, the demand for data science expertise has created a vast workforce shortage, reflecting the need for hundreds of thousands of data scientists in the U.S. alone.

Data Science Symposium, August 28th, 2020

The goal of the CU Denver Data Science Symposium is to bring together data science communities from CU Denver, whether they be the communities that pursue research in core data science, applications of data science in various fields of research, or education programs in data science. During this symposium, we will learn about various aspects of this discipline and share the current state of data science inside and outside CU Denver.
