The Data Science Institute kicks off its 5th year anniversary celebrations with a sold out lecture by Andrew Ng.

The Data Science Institute launched its 5th Year Anniversary celebrations on Monday evening with a sold out lecture by Andrew Ng on online learning. 

The Data Science Institute was formed in April 2014 by director Professor Yike Guo with the mission to foster, advance and promote excellence in data science research, education and application across all domains for the benefit of society.

Over its five years, the Institute has successfully built strong networks and collaborations both nationally and internationally with industry, academia and government bodies. Its main achievements to date include building the Europe’s largest visualisation suite - the Data Observatory, setting up joint academic Labs with several leading international industry organisations and being the hub of Imperial College data science research and education.

To recognise this key milestone, over the course of the next 6 months the Institute will be hosting a high profile and engaging Distinguished Lecture series delivered by world-leading academics in the field of data science and AI. The celebrations will culminate with a 2-day data science extravaganza in October 2019. 

Professor Yike Guo, Director of the Institute says 

I am immensely proud of the Data Science Institute and what we, as a College rich in data science, computing and mathematics knowledge, have managed to achieve over the past 5 years. We have published over 300 papers and, thanks to its many research collaborations both across College and with a variety of academic and industry partners, the DSI has established itself as an international hub on data science.
