In today's society sensors, computers, communication platforms and storage technologies give us access to previously unmanageable volumes of data, so-called Big Data. The conversion of data into actionable knowledge creates new opportunities and significant economic values. Big Data has revolutionized both the commercial world and research in many areas, and has opened up for new interdisciplinary collaborations.
The Linnaeus University Centre for Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA) addresses data-driven methods to gain deeper knowledge and understanding in a variety of applications in engineering, science and humanities. Research in computer science, media technology, signal processing and statistics represents the technical core of the center. Combined with research from application fields, such as astrophysics, engineering, linguistics, social science and eHealth, we create a unique dynamics.
Exploiting data to gain manageable information and useful knowledge is not a research venture alone. Consequently, there is also a large collaboration interest in industry and the public sectors. DISA works closely with several clusters and networks representing the IT and heavy vehicle industries, the health sector and municipalities and agencies. These partnerships combine excellent research with practical solutions to specific challenges in society, for the mutual benefit of researchers of different scientific areas and of external partners.
