MSC. IN DATA SCIENCE
The rate at which we are able to create data is rapidly accelerating. This ranges from biomedical data to social media activity and climate monitoring to retail transactions. These enormous quantities of data hold the key to success across many domains from business and marketing to treating cancer or mitigating climate change.
“According to IBM, globally, we currently produce over 2.5 Quintilian bytes of data a day.”
The pace at which we produce data is rapidly outstripping our ability to analyse and use it. Science and industry are crying out for a new generation of data scientists who combine the statistical skills of data analysis and the computational skills needed to carry out this analysis on a vast scale.
