Announcing our Latest New Collaboration, with Tsinghua University China
On 18 October 2017, Amsterdam Data Science signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University, China. Through this five-year agreement, the two parties will collaborate on research (e.g. joint project proposals), education and training (e.g. staff and student exchanges). Joint collaboration areas will encompass, amongst others; Computational Science, Database Architectures, Information Retrieval, Knowledge Representation, Machine Learning, Machine Translation, Natural Language Processing, and Urban Analytics.
