Creating of new value from data

It becomes increasingly important to emerge additional value and produce new businesses and services in a growing momentum of big data analysis and utilization among the variety of field in this modern society. In April 2016, this center was founded as a data science educational research base in Japan.

In this center, we extract useful information from huge amounts of data, and focus on cutting-edge educational research activities relating to the data science to create new value, and furthermore we devote a social contribution and an educational development in various fields through collaboration with companies, local governments and inter –university.
