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 Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) and Data Science Center (DSC) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) are joining forces in a new joint fellowship for (teams of) researchers interested in exploring the intersection of data science and other disciplines. The first fellow of the new program, Dr. Davide Ceolin, will start his fellowship at the IAS on June 17. Ceolin is currently affiliated with CWI.
Nanda Piersma, lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences (AUAS), has been appointed as a crown member of the Social and Economic Counsil (SER). This is the first time that a lecturer has been appointed as member of the SER. Nanda Piersma was approached because of her expertise in the field of digitisation.
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.
