Update on Amsterdam Academic Alliance Data Science Projects – July 2017
Within ADS, there is the Amsterdam Academic Alliance (AAA) Data Science funding stream, this is a joint initiative of UvA and VU, aimed at intensifying collaboration with each other and other regional knowledge institutions. The AAA-DS projects are unique in that they span multiple research domains (business, humanities, informatics, life sciences and social sciences), faculties and universities. There are 12 postdocs and 4 PhD students, each on a specific data science project within this 3-year programme.
Most AAA projects have been running for between 1.5 and 2 years now. In the table at the below link you can see a summary of the key highlights in the last 6 months, since the start of the project, and plans for the coming months for each project:

The Digital Interactions Lab. Our research bridges the gap between the technology-oriented and market-led formulation of the smart agenda with a sociological and psychological understanding of what people need artificial intelligence to be, and how data science might enhance our societies. This is a research group within the Informatics Institute at the University of Amsterdam.
The University of Applied Sciences has opened applications for its new Master Applied AI per April 1st 2022. This Dutch, 1-year Master’s programme allows students to understand, design, develop and implement AI. For the study year of 2022-2023 there will be place for 30 students.
