Data scientists discover hidden information in the big data and then create the new value using their knowledge and utilization skill of data science.The faculty of Data Science commits to contribute for social development to nurture excellent personnel who leads the optimal decision-making based on the data utilization for the society in the future.
Data science is a study of extracting “value” from ubiquitous data in our society. In the recent year, ICT (Information and Communication Technology) has been developing and there is significant and increasing demand for advanced ability of data processing and analyzing in every sort of business, industries such as medical care, educational and government organizations, etc. In addition to expertise, diverse experiences of analysis is required to derive social and economic “value” from the data.
This curriculum provides the latest science in 21st century called “data science” (data centric science) which transcends conventional informatics and statistics along with the development of ICT (Information and Communication Technology).
