New Research Video from the Information Access Group of CWI
Want to learn more on our Amsterdam Data Science partner’s research?
Watch this video from the Information Access group of CWI. They’re using technology to better interpret complex data.
The Information Access research group at CWI develops methods and techniques to better support users in accessing information that is heterogeneous, subjective and potentially inconsistent. We focus on the information’s context, using knowledge graphs to model differences in time and other relevant perspectives.
We work together with social scientists and humanities researchers to evaluate how technology can be used to best interpret complex data, by modelling and comparing different assumptions underlying the interpretation. We advocate the notion of transparency in all critical use of technology to improve trust assessments.
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.
