Data Science

The ultimate goal of data science is the extraction of knowledge from data. Therefore methods from mainly mathematics, statistics, and computer science are employed. The open data movement will make available an unimaginably amount of data from various sources. Combining these forces will lead the way to fruitful research and promising insights.

Open Data

The philosophy behind open data is that data and content can be freely used, modified, and shared by anyone for any purpose.

  • CERN Open Data Portal The CERN Open Data portal is the access point to a growing range of data produced through the research performed at CERN. It disseminates the preserved output from various research activities, including accompanying software and documentation which is needed to understand and analyze the data being shared. CERN

  • The Blue Brain Project The ultimate goals of brain simulation are to answer age-old questions about how we think, remember, learn and feel, to discover new treatments for the scourge of brain disease and to build new computer technologies that exploit what we have learned about the brain.

  • The Human Brain Project Understanding the human brain is one of the greatest challenges facing 21st century science. Today, for the first time, modern ICT has brought these goals within sight. HBP

Open Government Data

Citizens should have the right to access the documents and proceedings of their government. This allows for transparency and effective public oversight.
