The burst of data collection at unprecedented speed and scale in many fields, from biology to astrophysics, demands a paradigm shift in applied mathematics and computer science in order to face the new challenges in scientific modelling and computation.

To harness the power of this data revolution, the world needs academic researchers and professionals called “data scientists” skilled in designing and utilizing automated methods of analyzing it. Data science is becoming essential to answer some of the big scientific questions and technological challenges of our times: how can we prevent cancer and find better cures for diseases? How does the brain work? How can we design an artificial intelligence?

Data science lies at the crossroad of mathematics (pure and applied), statistics, computer science and an increasingly large number of application domains.
