We live in an age of almost incomprehensible amounts of data with vast expanses of it being produced every second of every day. It’s Perth Big Data Week and UWA is leading the way in its ability to collect, curate, store and analyse data, and make new discoveries.
“Advancements in data science driven by university research is revolutionising industry, government and society and UWA has world leading capabilities and expertise in data intensive discovery across the areas of analytics, infrastructure and applications,” says Professor Robyn Owens, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research).
“At UWA, with an international reputation for excellence in teaching, learning and research, we understand that data intensive discovery is not just big science but has the power to shape every aspect of our world.”
“Our ability to apply a multidisciplinary approach to harness and mine this data is ensuring that exciting new ground is being covered in this field in every way.”
“From helping to control the spread of insects causing widespread famine in East Africa, to climate analytics, to tracking the spread of infectious diseases, to advising on engineering designs for billion-dollar offshore oil and gas developments, UWA is providing global solutions with big data.”
“We’ve put together Data Intensive Discovery at UWA to share some of the great work being completed around the University in the field. If you wish to know more, don’t hesitate to come and talk to us.”
