New Collaboration between ADS & Tsinghua University
We are excited to announce news of a new collaboration between Amsterdam Data Science and Tsinghua University, China.
In June 2017, ADS Senior Researchers: Peter Boncz (CWI), Frank van Harmelen (VU), Alexandru Iosup (VU), and Maarten de Rijke (UvA), travelled to Tsinghua to discuss concrete collaborations with Tsinghua Computer Science Professors: Yiqun Liu, Yongwei Wu, Guoliang Li, Juanzi Li, Maosong Sun, and Wenwu Zhu.
The collaboration will initiate new projects on specifically identified joint research interest areas. Additionally, the collaboration will be used to promote student exchange visits between Amsterdam and Tsinghua, and joint PhD and Masters in Amsterdam and Tsinghua.
The ADS Thesis Awards aim to promote excellence in Data Science and AI from students at BSc and Master level. The Awards are open to students from all Amsterdam-based knowledge institutes.
On the 22nd of September LAB42 will host its Grand Opening from 15:00 onwards. LAB42 is an international hub for developing talent in the fields of digital innovation and AI. The building is the result of a partnership between the UvA, the municipality of Amsterdam and the business sector.
The UvA Data Science Centre, part of the University Library, is pleased to host its second yearly Data Science Day on the 13th of October 2022.
