Data is the new science. Big data holds the answers. Large open-access data sets offer unprecedented opportunities for scientific discovery. Scientists intending to make use of large composite data sets need to work closely with those responsible for gathering the data. It is a new interdisciplinary field, in which teams of scientists use automated methods to collect, extract and analyze massive amounts of data to answer important questions heretofore not answerable. Data science is a philosophy, a collection of methods and a suite of analytics that focuses on data storage, transport, and cleaning procedures in addition to visualization tools.
any universities are developing departments of data analytics –especially those with academics medical centers and engineering schools to figure out how to train graduates to harness the power of all the data that is now available to us-everyday-using powerful analytics. This new field is often unwieldy and faces many challenges. And the big question is how ready are we as a discipline and profession to take advantage of and contribute to big data science
The conference therefore addresses biggest challenges in Data Science and how we prepare our faculty, students and current scientists to be more aware of the precepts, methods and analytic tools in biomedical and health care fields.
